Doing somework to the 5th gen..keeping you guys updated

so as you guys know i been having the prelude curse since i joined this page lol all your guys fault haha, well you guys have been alot of help and i appreciate that!!!, So since i fixed the egr issue that was causing the misfire, i figured id start attacking one job at a time, have a cel for evap and cat code, just got done ordering my new evap canister and spark defouler for the rear 02 sensor, so im going to tackle them this weeknd, then on to the valve adjustment, then replace my blown out ball joints lol.. figured i would keep you guys updated.. just wanna say thanks again for all the help and advice. Always good to have another opinion!!!!

The CEL you have for evap; what code was it? P1456? P1457?

If it was P1456, it is most likely just your gas tank cap being loose.

If you can...leave the car sitting a day or two before removing the 02 sensor. Soak it with liquid wrench or a 50/50 mix of acetone and atf at least overnight.
I say liquid wrench because it's cheap and known to be the best of the readily available and cheap ones at allowing stuck bolts to break free.

Buy new bolts for the cat. Stainless if you can.
And if you can swing it replace both 02 sensors while you have everything apart.


DO NOT USE THIS for removing the sensor!!!


^^ it flexes and WILL strip the stuck on sensor. It's 7/8"

It is fine for installing one. Use high temp anti-seize on the threads when re-installing any and all your exhaust bolts.
If you can, go to Sears and buy a 7/8" and a 22mm box end/open end wrench. About $10ea. 6 point box end if they have it. But 12 point is more user friendly in tight spots. The 22 may work. But 7/8 converted is 22.2229 or something. But you will use it at some point.
The box end may not fit over your connector. You can either remove the pins via a precision screwdriver or pin extractor tool, or use the open end of your wrench.

We replaced the 'cat' 02 sensor on Elspectros new cat simply because the old one stripped using that pictured tool.


If you don't have one, and have the funds, grab a 3# hammer (about $15) while at Sears or Lowes or Harbor Freight.
I say Sears because they carry a pickle fork set by Liesle (? spelling?) for about $30 you'll find very handy for the ball joints and axle replacements etc.


^^ 3# hammer and pickle for set.

On Elspectros car we got tired of trying to break stuck exhaust bolts loose with the pipe on the car. So we removed the pipe at the header and dropped the whole thing. A couple hours of work made it sooooo freaking easy to remove the cat later. I dremeled/hack-sawed off all the junky/stuck bolts at that time and installed all new (stainless) bolts...about $15 spent. And used the anti-seize on them.

Don't know how to de-pin a connector you say?
Download TSB 00-099.

^^ this gives you rare part numbers as well. TSB 00-099

Below is a link you may find helpful.
It's TSB 00-0009, the clogged egr fix.

^^a Honda way to clean the EGR system on an Odyssey.

At your leisure, go to a junkyard and grab a couple of connectors off some old junky civic or something. And using your precision screwdrivers, learn how to remove pins. It's easy once you know how. You'll never fret over a busted connector again.
We've replaced at least a half dozen crappy connectors on our cars.


^^ map sensor connector..post repair.
Takes like 5 minutes once you know how.

Re: Doing somework to the 5th gen..keeping you guys updated

I need to get heat on the rear 02 sensor, i replaced the front one.. Im not replacing the cat at this is time, just putting the defouler in, beacuse the rear 02 sensor is what monitors the cat code, but yes i will spray that mofo down and be letting it sit over night, see if it helps a bit
