it would cause overheating but the smoke is probally coming from some sort of water or antifreeze in combustion chamber

In the exhaust manifolds & in the exhaust itself

it is in the exhaust manifold,or exhaust pipe...

The oxygen sensor on a 2004 Honda Accord is found on the exhaust system. They are placed close to the catalytic converter so the sensors can properly read the exhaust flow.

The oxygen sensor on a 1988 Honda Prelude fuel injected engine is on the exhaust manifold. It screws directly onto the front of the exhaust manifold.

Screwed into the exhaust system. Follow the exhaust system from the engine rearward and you will find the oxygen sensor or sensors if it if it has more than one.

in the catalyc converter... exhaust manifold

If you open the hood of your Honda Civic, most likely you will locate the oxygen sensor (O2) mounted in the exhaust manifold, above the exhaust pipe flange. On some models the exact location might vary, but you can always find the sensor by following the exhaust manifold and pipe. Depending on the year model of your Honda Civic, you may find a Primary Oxygen Sensor (PHO2) right before the catalytic converter and a Secondary Oxygen Sensor (SHO2) right after the catalytic.

After the exhaust manifold but before the catalytic converter on the exhaust tube.

Honda oxygen sensor is usually positioned in the exhaust manifold downpipe before the catalytic converter of your Honda vehicle or in the middle of the two mentioned components. For more details:

It is a sensor that screws into the exhaust pipe or manifold that senses the amountof oxygen that is in the exhaust and controlls the amount of fuel it feeds the engine.

Oxygen sensor or lambda sensor is situated in the exhaust pipe in front of the catalyst. Disconnect from loom and unscrew with large spanner.

Follow the intake manifold. Sometimes, there are oxygen sensors on the exhaust under the car.

A 2003 Honda Accord Oxygen sensor is located on the exhaust pipe. To find it jack the car up and safely position it on jack stands. Crawl under the vehicle and look at the downpipe of the exhaust, the sensor will have two wires protruding from it.

On the exhaust system. There is more than one.

All O2 sensors are located somewhere on the exhaust system.

For a Honda it will be the sensor on the exhaust manifold that is closest to the radiator ( transverse mounted engine ) for normally mounted engines it would be on the drivers side.

It is underneath the car, at the exhaust manifold where it comes off the engine...access it from the bottom

There is one cat between the exhaust manifold and cat and one after the cat before the muffler they are easily identified as they are the only things with wires sticking out of your exhaust system but some models have the o2 sensor on the exhaust manifold.

It is located right wehre the exhaust pipe and the catalytic converter join.

To replace the oxygen sensor on a Honda Odyssey, first unscrew the sensor. Then use a 22 mm socket or 7/8 inch wrench to replace the oxygen sensor.

Oxygen sensor is located at the exhuast Manifold.

The primary oxygen sensor is located before the catalytic on most Hondas depending on the year. If your Honda has the catalytic converter integrated to the exhaust manifold then you should find it on the manifold just before the catalytic converter.

The HO2S (Heated Oxygen Sensor) bank 1 is between the manifolds and the Cadillac Converter. Manifold Exhaust (T) > "HO2S Sensor" > Cadillac Converter > muffler

I'm guessing it's a 4 cylinder. It will be the rear most sensor in the exhaust system usually behind the converter.
