The knock sensor just advances and retards the engine timing only. If there is a noise in the engine then you have engine are valve train problems. The knock sensor will not make the engine knock.
The knock sensor, in your 1997 Chevrolet Lumina, can be found on the front of the engine. The knock sensor is near the top of the engine.
The 2006 Dodge charger knock sensor is located on the back of the engine. The knock sensor will be near the bottom of the engine cover.
Yes it can hurt your engine to drive with a bad knock sensor. The knock sensor should be replaced as soon as possible.
A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. The knock sensor generally threads into the engine block. This code may show up intermittently or the Service engine light may be lit constantly. You may notice drivability problems including a lack of power and perhaps some hesitation. There may also be other symptoms. * The knock sensor is faulty and needs to be replaced * There is a wiring short/fault in the knock sensor circuit * Check the resistance of the knock sensor (compare it to factory specs) * Check for broken/frayed wires leading to the sensor * Replace the knock sensor
There is no "knock sensor" on a 4.0L engine
You can run a diagnostic test for the knock sensor, on your 2005 Chevy avalanche, by hooking the engine up to a diagnostic tester.
This is controlled by a knock sensor.
NO it will not. If you have a knocking sound then you have trouble inside of the engine.
The circuit 1 knock sensor would be located on the lower right side of the engine block (passenger side). You will need to drain the coolant from the radiator and be prepared for the passenger side of the block to drain coolant when the knock sensor is removed. After you disconnect the electrical connection to the knock sensor, the knock sensor simply unthreads from the block counterclockwise. Apply a thread sealant to the threads of the new sensor and install, no need to over tighten, this is a tapered pipe thread.
A bad knock sensor would illuminate the check engine light and allow the engine to ping (spark knock). The engine doesn't shift, the transmission shifts.
No. It only senses engine vibration/knock.
