A knock sensor is a piezoelectric device that senses the knocks produced in the engine. The knock sensor tells de computer to retard the timing in order to prevent piston damage and/or blown head gaskets.
Nothing will happen to the car if you disconnect the knock sensor. It just will not detect a problem if there happens to be one.
what will happen if you install a knock sensor that isn't called for that make & madel
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
the motor could pre-detonate or "knock" that can cause damage
LS does not have a knock sensor. GSR does have a knock sensor
The knock sensor detects spark knock or ping.
that the knock sensor does
Where is the knock sensor for a 99 pathfinder
A knock sensor is a pezio electric device that adjusts ignition timing to optimize emissions and fuel economy. It measures the "knocks" that happen when timing is too early or late.
The knock sensor retards the engine timing when there is a knock or ping detected. This will make the car a little sluggish. It is rare that the knock sensor goes bad.
Knock sensor = CKP sensor on this vehicle.
I don't believe it has a knock sensor.
you mean knock sensor
knock sensor location
The knock sensor is located under the Intake Manifold and there is a knock sensor 1/ knock sensor 2 on this model,the 2 is the one in the rear.
A knock sensor is a piezoresistive sensor whose signal is varied by the amount of force or pressure applied to it.
In most cases corrosion will cause a knock sensor to go bad. The knock sensor can also be shorted out by an electrical surge.
kia sportage knock sensor
There is no "knock sensor" on a 4.0L engine
how do I disconnect the Electrical connection on knock sensor
No it will not. The knock sensor is used to adjust the timing.
The knock sensor is located below the intake manifold
