Operation



The KS is used to detect engine vibrations caused by preignition or detonation and provides information to the PCM, which then retards the timing to eliminate detonation.

  2.  
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4.  
  5. Remove the intake manifold.

The knock sensor bolt torque is higher than the other sensors. If the proper torque is not applied driveability can be affected.
