Does that sensor go right into the radiator at the bottom, on the Passenger Side?

You can get the O-ring at the site listed below for $1.22 plus shipping, or at your local dealership for $1.50 or so. Here is the Honda part number in case the Acura dealership doesn't have it and you want to get it at the Honda dealership, plus it might be cheaper.

Here is the diagram;

yup.. the thermosensor i'm talking about located on the radiator(passenger side) ... and thanks for the link. it was helpful..

but i can't believe they charging 1.52 for a little rubber and also 1.22 for shipping, that O ring weights no more than an ant??.. ain't it 47cent for a stamp???.. :mad:

Actually, the way they list their prices, it's $1.22 for the o-ring, and probably $5-7 shipping. I think a stamp is 37 cents.

Just go to your local Acura dealer an pay the $1.50, which is very affordable, considering it's a decently important part.

I take it you haven't bought too many dealer parts yet.

If your local dealer doesnt have it in stock, it's gonna cost even more for special order. but if it's Honda specific, I dont see any other way around that.

Do you still have the broken o-ring? Couldn't you take that to a parts store and ask for an identical one?
i did take the broken part to Autozone, pepboys, advance auto.. they all said eighter i'll have to buy the whole new thermosensor or i'll have to live with it.. i called up Honda. they having it order. the wait: one week. the cost: 1.65.... oo wells. guess that's how they make business... i was considering putting a little clear silicone around it and wait until it drys and install it back into the radiator. but that doesn't seem to be a good idea..
