The knock sensor is a piezoelectric device that creates an electrical current which the ECU monitors. So I doubt a resistor would have the desired effect.Matt, whenever you can get to it would be great. Dylan still needs to get the other parts, and the TB will be the easiest to do. How much do you want for the TB??
Dyl, when are you planning on getting the covers knock sensor and EGR connector?
Does anyone here know how to fool the knock sensor? The knock sensor should work on resistance, so most can be fooled by putting a resister in the place of the knock sensor.
I don't have to, try it some time.You'll never convince me of that.
Right, they shouldn't, and I can't say I've encountered a car they did, and every tech class I've been to says they are ONLY to monitor the performance of the catalyst, however, I wouldn't be surprised if some manufacturers programmed something in.Just like the rear O2s shouldn't effect the air fuel mixture on the OBDII cars.... I saw a difference with my 93 when I set the timing correctly as it should be.
Agreed, it never hurts to be sure on all fronts.I don't want to take a chance and waist money on another emissions test until I'm certain I have done every thing I can to make it run as clean as possible. The covers can't be that much, and it'll be less than 2 hours to put them on.
