Bought a sensor off EBay that was $189 and came in a Honda box with part# 36351-P07-003 but sensor has L1H1 stamped on it.
Little help? As in is this a correct sensor?

I bought a Bosch oxygen sensor for my DX. It crapped out after only a few thousand miles - maybe 5 - 8,000 miles.
I then read online about Bosch having some quality issues with their O2 sensors.
Just thought I would pass that on, if you are considering an aftermarket part.

Yes, the L1H1 stamped on the 02 sensor is precisely the one that you want. As an added assurance, provided that it also came with the with the red, orange, yellow, white and black wire configuration (i.e. which most likely it did) then you've found the right O2 sensor.

For future reference, whatever you do, don't let anyone talk you into buying a used O2 sensor or the NTK 24542 OXYGEN 5-wire O2 sensor with the blue wire within the configuration. The NTK came with my car when I first bought it and my gas mileage suffered.

VX was stumbling in lean mode. Unplug sensor and stumbling went away. Then I put in the new L1H1 Stamped o2 sensor and the car runs very good now. I drove the car stumbling like that for 3 months....I should have unplugged the o2 sensor....I was getting 35-40 mpg on highway. I cannot wait to see what I get now.
