1997 gmc truck pings


Timing should be set by the PCM. So you cant adjust the timing. However if you have a faulty knock sensor the PCM cant tell the proper time to fire. The knock sensor picks up on ignition ping and adjust the time to send spark to the plugs.. Other causes of ping can be the engine temp, faulty EGR or the engine can be to lean.

Why does my motor ping when under load i changed knock senser


Generally a Pinging noise isn't due to a knock sensor. It sounds like you may have Detonation issues.

I'd really check your spark plugs to make sure they are not fouled as well as running some higher octane gas to see if it helps.

basically, your getting combustion earlier then you're supposed to. This could be to various reasons.

Check in this order, Spark, Timing.

Check to make sure the spark plugs are all sparking and clean / properly gaped. Pull one coil/wire at a time off the plug to see if the pinging stop (pull a wire, start the car. Turn off car, re-attach wire, move onto next plug.) If it stops on a specific cylinder that means you're having detonation issues on that cylinder. If it never stops, then it sounds as though it could be timing related or have a valve train issue.

We'll start here and move on. Let me know what comes of this!

Will a flywheel make a 92 ramcharger timing be off


I have never heard of that happening before. More than likely the timing chain is worn, or the cam sensor is weak; however, make sure that the plugs are gapped properly and that all sensors are performing correctly since they are a part of the loop that causes the computer to set the timing off of.
