Pressure Switch Replacement

Has anyone replaced the pressure sensor for our generation? I've been reading about it on V6P but I'm not sure if its applicable for our generation.

I was able to locate the 3rd gear under the battery but not sure where the 4th one is...

Yes, it is applicable to the 6th gens...as well as 7th gen Accord and 3rd Gen Acura TL.

Replace fluid pressure switches every 50k miles.

Have you done it before? Or happen to know where the switch is? Its definitely not in the same place as the 7th gen. I was able to locate the 3rd gear but not the 4th.

Re: Pressure Switch Replacement

No I have not done it.

My bad. I have a 2006 5 speed auto in my 01 Accord, so I had that marked. Check the diagrams below for the 6th gen Accord V6 and 4 cylinder.

Re: Pressure Switch Replacement

Update:

Well I finally found the 2nd clutch switch and replaced it with a new one. Just in case anyone is looking to do the same, I will attach a picture of its location. If you lucky enough to unplug it without removing the rad hose, you can just slip in a 22mm socket to remove it. However, since I was not able to I had to remove the dizzy and hose for clearance. It wasn't really necessary to remove the dizzy but I needed to change the gasket anyways. When removing the rad hose, it will POUR coolant so make sure you have something to catch it.

The radiator hose I am talking about is from the engine block to the pipe in the cabin. When you locate this hose, look to the left a bit and down.

Re: Pressure Switch Replacement

No need to remove the radiator hose. You can just push it out of the way. I used (closed end) a 7/8" open end combination wrench and it fit down in there perfectly.

Re: Pressure Switch Replacement

if you drain the coolant from the radiator pet**** that might prevent it from pouring coolant out when you remove the rad hose
