Can a universal oxygen sensor is ok instead of an oem one for a repair ?
oxygen sensor problem on 2001 Honda CR-V
I would not recommend a universal oxygen sensor. If you would rather not use an OEM part I would at least go for a "direct fit" aftermarket. A direct fit sensor should plug directly into the factory wiring harness.
Do not use the universal fit O2 sensor. Make sure that the part has the correct wiring harness to plug into the factory harness before purchasing the replacement part. Normally the O2 sensors for Hondas are made by DENSO or NTK. a Direct fit in 1 of those 2 brands should take care of the issue with the O2 sensor.
