Q:IF THE KNOCK SENSOR IS BAD, WILL IT CAUSE TRANSMISSION HESITATION?
A:A knock sensor, which serves to warn of engine knock or pinging due to a bad air/fuel mixture, can go bad. Signs that the knock sensor is bad are a sluggish engine, poor fuel economy and slow acceleration. Mostly, the knock sensors do not fail entirely, but go soft and create false signals. You can check the knock sensor through an electrical harness.
Q:are both knock sensors same actual part
A:Yes. Knock (Detonation) Sensor. It picks up engine frequencies due to improper combustion and retards timing to the proper curve. When it fails, the vehicle’s performance suffers. "Detonation" or "Pinging" engine knocks as well as improper timing control. The crystal breaks down and can no longer create the proper signal.

A:Replace the connector.

Q:do you need to replace the knock sensor if it goes bad. will it hurt your car in any way?
