  • Q:

      A:

      Hi Jim, I'm glad to assist you. The knock sensor is designed to save the engine from damage caused by pre-ignition and or pinging. It does this by momentarily retarding the ignition timing until the cause stops and thus preventing damage to the engine. If you elect to drive the vehicle in this condition you will encounter hills and different load conditions along your destination. This is when the knock sensor comes into play and saves you. So it is recommended to replace the knock sensor immediately.

      A:

      Hi Novice, happy to help you! There should be only one ignition knock sensor on your vehicle. However, I would suggest that you to take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

  • Q:

    what happens when this knock sensor gos bad
    Asked on 12/25/2011 by me from ohio

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      If the knock sensor is starting to go bad, your car will start to experience acceleration problems and a declining fuel economy. Frequently, the car will start to become sluggish. The sensor rarely fails outright and instead will start registering engine knock when there isn't any and the ECU will dial down the engine performance and slow the ignition timing in response. Reasons for failure include corroded connectors in the wire between the sensor and the EPU or internal failure of the sensor itself since it is very sensitive to vibrations.
      For compatibility of this part with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle make, model and engine specification.
