SOURCE: No spark in my 1992 Chevy Camaro RS 3.1L engine rotates but doesn't engage.

Hi Candie, if you have air, fuel and spark it should run. Getting to the fuel side-"is fuel getting into the engine?" Your ignition may work, your starter may work, fuel pump may work, but if you have an ignition key with a resistor inside it (little silver piece of metal in the plastic of the ignition key) the key, it could be bad and will shut down the fuel injector. It's part of the security system if some idiot tries to break the steering column to steal your car. It won't run.
I have a 92 Z28 with a 350 and I had to get a new ignition with resistor and correct resistor ohm key. About $400.00 bucks but if you search around Z28 forums there are ways to bypass this for less $$ if you want to.

Have you checked the spark? If it's the 4 cylinder Cavalier then your Coilpack is behind the motor and odds are it hasn't been replaced since it was manufactured. I had the same problem with that model.

SOURCE: Steps to replace a knock Sensors?

I had to do this last summer. First I went to Advanced Auto. They
read the code for me. One of them was bad, but I went ahead and
replaced both. I purchased a manual for the steps, two knock sensors
and a gasket set. About 170 dollars total. You will also need a torq
wrench in inch pounds. Take your time, keep it clean. Make sure
you clean the manifold and engine head surfaces where the gasket
seats. Use a non metallic scraper, and if need be solvent to loosen
any old gasket material. I found that laying saturated rags on the
head surface and leaving them set a few hours helped the most.
You can also get the steps and torque specs from either Advance
auto or Auto Zone(then you don't need the manual).
Use patience when tightening the manifold bolts, you should
torque them in the sequence given(in the manual or online) and
you have to do it twice, first time at half torque, then the second at
full torque. If you over tighten you can crack the manifold.
Good luck

Under intake manifold on top of block,you need to remove intake to access sensors there are two of them you can't miss them when intake is off. After replacing sensors you need a new intake gasket.

How to prevent engine knock on 92 Ford Thunderbird Lx


The sensor helps to monitor the engine performace, and when it detects knock or pinging. It sends a signal to the PCM which in turn adjusts the timing and fuel ratio to reduce or eliminate it in those situations you have knocking. Low octane, bad gas, carbon deposits and heat will contribute to pinging. It's best to replace the sensor if you know it is faulty to avoid damage to the engine.

How do I bypass a knock sensor on a 2000 Nissan frontier


The pcm uses the knock sensor to monitor for engine knocking, and adjusts ignition timing based on this. If there is no knock sensor present, you will wind up with a hard fault that will keep the check engine lamp on continuously. Also, the truck will go into a more conservative driving mode to prevent knocking.
The knock sensor for a frontier is not terribly expensive, but it is a pain to access on nissan v6s, under the intake manifold

Car doesn't start after replacing both knock sensors


The car should start without the knock sensors, why would you change the knock sensors? They are a piezo quartz generator that rarely go bad. Usually other symptoms of engine faults produce a code that say there is a knock sensor problem. Back to the no start thing, maybe you may have caused a unrelated problem. Bad reconnection or something. Retract your steps to see if you did something wrong

What part of the engine knocks when your knock sensor is bad on a 11995 cutlass supreme sl


Hello: The Knock Sensors purpose is to detect pre-ignition, when the computer receives a knock signal it re tarts the timing to prevent the pre-ignition. Any mechanical related knock will activate the knock sensor signal. If the knock sensor is bad it WILL NOT cause the engine to knock.......

How do I replace a knock sensor for a 1992 toyota camry v6 le


First, I would like to mention that most knock sensor codes are not caused by the knock sensors, but a mechanical problem with the engine. The knock sensors cannot differentiate between noises caused by mechanical problems like a bad pulley bearing, bad motor mount, noisy alternator bearings, etc. and spark knock. knock sensor codes are set when the computer has retarded the timing as far as possible to compensate for ignition ping (Spark Knock) and the noise still exists.

With that said, here are the instructions.

Remove the Intake Chamber assembly.
Disconnect Injector connectors.
Disconnect the heater hose from the Intake Manifold.
Remove the 9 bolts. 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and Intake Manifold assembly.
Remove right hand engine mounting stay and water outlet.
Disconnect the following hoses and connectors:
Radiator inlet hose.
Engine coolant reservoir hose.
Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor connector.
Engine Coolant Temperature Switch connector.
Ground strap connector.

Remove the 3 bolts and right hand mounting stay.
Remove the wire band.
Disconnect the water bypass hose from the inlet housing.
Remove the 2 bolts, 2 nuts, 2 plate washers and water outlet.
Remove the 2 gaskets.
Disconnect the Knock Sensor connectors.
Remove the Knock Sensors.

1992 ssei, stalls when it warms up and starts back up again a minute or two later. Also have a esc, knock sensor code where is the knock sensor?


Knock sensor will not cause stall, but ign module problem will. Possible you have a bad ign module, but that will be a very expensive guess. Knock sensor is next to the oil filter.

1992 GMC Sonoma - 4.3l cannot start after stall and knocking.


Sounds like an engine sensor, EGR valve or O2 sensor has failed. First thing to do is to look at the engine trouble codes to pin down the failure. You can usually borrow an OBD1 code checker from your local parts store.
