When the clean air act of 1977 set limits on the amount of pollutants that could be given off by an automobile, the answers of the car producers were: installation of some pollution control devices and building a self-adjusting engine. The first self-adjusting engines dubbed as feedback fuel control systems was used in 1981. Manufacturers also considered the addition of catalytic converters and oxygen sensors. These are components that play critical role in reducing hazardous emissions from your vehicle.

Positioned in the exhaust system, the oxygen sensor is the one that measures the fuel content of the exhaust stream right after it leaves the cylinder. The oxygen sensor will accurately examine this red-hot exhaust hundreds of times per minute and convert its status into a corresponding voltage signal. This signal would then be sent to a microprocessor, which is responsible for reading, analyzing and operating a fuel or air mixture device to make a precise air/fuel ratio. And as the computer progressed, it becomes capable of adjusting the ignition spark timing and making other emission controls operate.

The most popular type of oxygen sensors features a zirconia element to produce voltage. However, there's a certain type of oxygen sensor that utilizes the technology of electrical resistance to create the same voltage characteristics as the zirconia sensors. But regardless of the technology that each manufacturer used in their oxygen sensors, the changes in the air/fuel mixture can cause a voltage change that's checked by the powertrain control module of your vehicle. Some oxygen sensors possess built-in heaters designed to warm them more swiftly to their operating temperature. The Onboard Diagnostics II was made the standard technology for all vehicle makes and model in 1996 model year. This system has one oxygen sensor located on the inlet to the catalytic converter and the other one placed on the outlet. For those driving machines with dual converters, you can see as many as four oxygen sensors.

The symptoms of bad or defective oxygen sensors are black smoke with a rotten-egg odor and poor mileage and performance. You don't want your Honda automobile to perform poorly and emit something bad and hazardous, right? But no matter how careful we are and no mater how durable our Honda oxygen sensors are, they will eventually age and wear out. Once you found out that your Honda oxygen sensor is already damaged or worn out, better replace it right away or else, your car will be found emitting deadly fumes to the environment. You can easily find replacement Honda oxygen sensors in the automotive market but you must be meticulous in getting a product that meets rigorous industry standards and are built to give you long years of service.
