That thread has instructions on how to check if the sensor is good, but it sounded like if it were the culprit, it would be a continuous problem.

The oxygen sensor should be fine.
That makes a lot of sense where dizzy made little sense to me. Sounds like a expensive job. I know one really good mechanic but he probably doesn't know VXs. Should i take it to honda dealer? Thing is no one there will know VX either as this is 22 yr old car. It matters who works on it not place. I mean if some guy at honda works on it that never worked on vx what is that good for. What do you guys think?
