No it will not. The knock sensor is used to adjust the timing.
In most cases corrosion will cause a knock sensor to go bad. The knock sensor can also be shorted out by an electrical surge.
yes when it is not working properly
No it will not.
the motor could pre-detonate or "knock" that can cause damage
No it will not.
LS does not have a knock sensor. GSR does have a knock sensor
It will cause it to run sluggishly.
You have another problem other then the knock sensor if the engine will not start and run. A knock sensor will not cause the engine not to run.
A knock sensor is a device that senses detonation. Detonation occurs in the engine when the fuel begins to burn prematurely; it can cause substantial damage to the engine.
No it will not cause it not to run.
No. Worst case senario with a bad knock sensor is check engine light, and bad fuel economy. Also spark knock, which if not taken care of can cause excessive heat to build in the engine and cause premature failure.
The knock sensor detects spark knock or ping.
If you run your rig with a bad knock sensor the computer will not be able to tell if or when your engine starts to knock (such as a rod knocking). That is if it isn't already cause the sensor is there for insurance. Make sure the sensor is bad and if so have it replaced asap. It is an expensive job cause you have to remove the intake to get to them (some engines have two under the intake). willyray3
If the knock sensor failed the CEL (Check Engine Light) would be illuminated and the engine may "ping" or "spark knock" under load. Serious "spark knock" can damage the engine if allowed to continue.
The Knock sensor is located on the lower side of the engine near the oil pan rail and goes into water. Make sure your engine is cool before you start the job. The best way is to drain all of the coolant out of the engine first, then disconnect the wire, then remove the knock sensor. WARNING--antifreeze will come pouring out when you take the knock sensor our so WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES to protect your eyes. Do not use any sealer other that the sealer that is on the new sensor.
that the knock sensor does
Where is the knock sensor for a 99 pathfinder
Make SURE the engine is COLD. Then unscrew the old sensor and install the new one. Antifreeze will leak out of the engine so be quit when replacing it.
Yes but, if you relieve the pressure by opening the radiator cap (when engine is cold) then replace the radiator cap before removing the knock sensor, only a small amount of coolant will come out while you change the unit.
Oxygen Sensor. Or the Knock Sensor. Or you could check the plugs for faults.
yes, it is protecting the motor from damage.
I don't believe it has a knock sensor.
