possible low oil
your knock sensor could need to be replaced
a lot of times its your timing belt, if its more of a knock its could be a rod knock
The knock sensor is located under the intake manifold on the passenger side of the engine. It can be accessed from under the vehicle. Look above and to the slight left of the oil filter on the back of the engine. The knock sensor will resemble a small battery terminal with a bolt through to the engine.
It's time for a new engine.
knock sensor is going bad or is bad
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.
It usually happens in high mileage engines that have excessive wear to the main bearings (which causes the knock) and too much wear to the oil rings on the pistons (which causes the smoke). A slight knock can mean that you need to add a higher octane gasoline, however, when both knocking and smoking occur, it probably means that you'll have to have the engine overhauled.
This is controlled by a knock sensor.
I have a recent engine knock on my 91 escort started out intermittant. I have a recent engine knock on my 91 escort started out intermittant.
knocking as in spark knock? or engine knock? spark knock is adjusted through a knock sensor via ignition timing. eng. knock is due to brg. knock as in low oil pressure or sluge in engine or just a tired motor
NO it will not. If you have a knocking sound then you have trouble inside of the engine.
No. It only senses engine vibration/knock.
Severe spark knock (pinging) can damage the engine. Knock sensors detect spark knock (pinging) in the engine. They send that info to the ECM (Engine Control Module). The ECM makes temporary adjustments in engine timing to eliminate the spark knock.
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.
It is located on the side of the engine block. If you have a code for a knock sensor and you have a noise in the engine, it will set the code. That does not mean that the sensor is bad. They very rarely give problems.
The knock sensor has failed and you need to replace it with a new one in order for the check engine light to go out.
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
And engine knock is normally caused but I worn crankshaft bearing or rod bearing.
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, in your 1997 Chevrolet Lumina, can be found on the front of the engine. The knock sensor is near the top of the engine.
Yes it can hurt your engine to drive with a bad knock sensor. The knock sensor should be replaced as soon as possible.
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.
souds like its low on oil or may need lifters or possible it needs a cam or new timing chain depending on the knock . i would make sure its full of oil first . if that's not it i would take it to a machanic
Do you mean the knock sensor? It's a device that detects engine knock so that the computer can retard the timing. If the knock sensor isn't functioning, it could be a connector or the sensor.
