    Hi,

    I have a 2008 Civic VIII 1.3 Hybrid and the MIL light is coming on every couple of days but will turn off again a day later. I suspect the O2 sensors, how many O2 sensors does this model have and is there a guide on replacing these?

    I know nothing about this model (and never even knew that there was a Civic hybrid back in 2008!) however I would suggest that it would be better to have the stored error code(s) read and therefore identify the problem area rather than guess that it might be an oxygen sensor. You need to plug in an OBD2 diagnostic scanner to the vehicle diagnostics port... best to buy your own scanner as they are so cheap (I got an ELM327 Bluetooth unit from the Gearbest site for about $4 and use it with the free Torque app for Android devices).
