No it won't. All the knock sensor does is to retard the timing when a knock, pre-ignition, is detected. If you think this may be a problem, unplug it, then try to turn engine over. The first thing I would do would be to check and make sure you have full system voltage at the distributor, about 12.6 volts. Once you verify this, get a test light and pierce the number one plug wire boot, at the distributor cap, stop once you hit the terminal. Ground the other end of the test light and have somebody turn the car over, while you are watching the test light. If it goes on and off as the motor turns over, then is is trying to fire, but if it doesn't go on and off, take out the ignition module and have it tested. There are several different things that could cause it not to fire, but this is the easiest to do first.
Where would the knock sensor be located on a 2004 mazda 6?
I have a 240 and with the knock sensor unplugged it will still start so I would have to say no.
If just the knock sensor need to be replaced. I would say no more than $150.00
No. It only senses engine vibration/knock.
No, it will not cause the engine to knock.
A knock sensor is located in a specific area on the block or cylinder head in order to sense spark knock occuring and send a signal to the ECM to retard the timing. Relocating the knock sensor would defeat its purpose.
If a knock sensor was bad, the check engine light would be illuminated and the code(s) set would indicate so.
yes but if it is a blown head gasket it will make it miss and put steam and some water out the tell pipe if its not doing these things then check your anti knock sensor
No it will not.
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.
just curios as to where a knock sensor would b located on a 95 vw golf gti 2.0
The function of the knock sensor ob a sensor on a 1991 4.3 s10 is to provide the computer the position of the crank shaft to give it the right information to get correct timing. That would be the crank position sensor. The knock sensor monitors the engine for spark knock (ping) so the ECM (Engine Control Module) can retard the timing to eliminate it.
If your car would run lean the sensor would not be able to determine that and their could be engine damage.
There are no symptoms since the knock sensor doesn't do anything unless the engine is detonating, in which case it would do nothing and you would hear it. The knock sensor code is often tripped when there is a fault in something else since it's part of the same circuit. This is considered a "ghost" error code.
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.
It would help to know the year, But I would say that it is the knock sensor wire and it should be pluged into the knock sensor that is screewed into the side of the engine block just in front of the starter.
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.
The knock sensor is exactly what it says. It senses any knock or ticking in the engine and retards the timing. The knock sensor is not the problem, the knocking is. Go to a repair shop and have it diagnosed.
if you dont have any oil in the cars motor that would be a reasin why its knocking
What year, and application? NEW ANSWER: That would be the knock sensor,
Knock sensors can be a pain to get to (located under the intake manifold) combined with being fairly cheap, it would be better just to put a new one on by the time you get to it. If you have a code indicating the knock sensor is bad just replace it and save yourself a headache.
I have a 1990 Pontiac Safari wagon that would not start,after much testing we found one bad fuel injector replaced it and car started but ran terrible, did more testing and found bad ignition module, replaced module runs better but now have code #43 knock sensor and engine is running in default mode switched ECM no help must be knock sensor don't think knock sensor would keep car from starting but the other things mentioned here would. Hope this helps. This wagon has 3.1 engine. Havent changed knock sensor yet.
You would probably hear a spark knock or pinging under acceleration or load. Check engine light may come on also.
