    Knock Sensor

    What's it for??

    i was drivin to the garage 2day....to get the exhaust manifold checked, when the speedo....well stoped....the engine was still running, but the dials went right down, abs, tc and airbag light came on, and no power steering.....bloody good work out for the arms!!!

    When i got there they ran TECH 2 and told me it was the knock sensor.....quoted £55 fitted....is this good??

    im geting it done this afternoon, so hopefully all should be good, and u guys will report i havn't been ripped off

    the knock sensor listens to the engine and adjusts the timing when it heres the engine "pinking" (detonating incorrectly)
