Find how does the engine do when knock sensor is bad on a 2003 kia reo


The knock sensor is generally very reliable and the ones I have tested have been capacitive and I tested them with an old LCR bridge.

The knock sensor is essentially a microphone that will detect knocking or detonation caused by bad fuel or overheating or too much ignition advance and the ECU will retard the timing to protect the engine.

A few early electronic management systems were programmed to periodically advance the timing until detonation was heard by the knock sensor when it would retard until the knocking stopped thus maintaining the maximum pressure on the pistons for the fuel input.

The mechanical safety of the engine is placed at risk if it is run with a bad sensor, though a bad sensor should cause the engine brain to use its pre-programmed values to compensate.
