the computer receive signals if engine knocking and adjust the timing till stop.Before replace the sensors make sure the engine have no other misfire ,bad gas or vacuum leak.plug scan tool and read the code.Only circuit problem will be a true knock problem. Inspect all wire connectors before start taking a part.

    DID YOU RUN TEST WITH SCANNER?FORD HAVE SELF TEST PROGRAM ON MOST GOOD SCAN TOOLS.ONLY BAD PART IS FORD DON'T HAVE LIVE DATA FOR MISFIRE. IF YOU FIND SOMEBODY WITH GOOD SCANNER SELECT CYLINDER BALANCE TEST AND NOTE THE ABNORMALITY IN ONE OR MORE CYLINDERS . LOCATE THE PCV VALVE AND FOLLOW THE PIPE TO THE INTAKE , THE CONNECTION GO BAD FROM OIL AND COLLAPSE . WILL COST MISFIRE AND THE KNOCK SENSOR CAN'T CORRECT THE TIMING.

SOURCE: I need a wiring diagram

Good luck on the Limo part. Ford didnot build the limo part and there a numerous manufacturers that did. I doubt they will be able to assist you with a car that old. Find the build tagfor the builder and contact them if they are still around.

SOURCE: 1997 lincoln town car 4.6 with a p0430 fault code

I will make an assumption here, we know what the root word means. This code was extracted from the computer by? What this is telling you one of 2 things: The Bank 2 oxygen sensor down stream of the catalytic converter (there are 2 converters, one for each bank of cylinders on the 4.6ltr engine) is bad and/or that the Bank 2 catalytic converter is no longer doing the job it was designed to do. Simply, Catalysts wear out. They are good for approx 100,000 miles (as required by Federal Law). Again, I assume that the reason the intake manifold was replaced was because it had a crack in one, or more, of the runners? (part that feeds the head of a manifold). It may have taken a while to find this as being the cause of why the car running incorrectly, maybe rough. This means, that during the time the car was being driven with the problem, the amount of unburned, or not within spec exhaust gases, coming off the side of the engine affected by the intake issue was higher than normal. This out of balance level of exhaust gases were being dumped into the converter on that side of the engine, thus causing the converter to have to run hotter, work harder, or even at the time the gas was being processed through, causing deposits to be formed in the converter, thus shortening it's life span. The Bank 1 side of the engine, apparently, did not have the issue and it's catalytic converter's life was not affected. I hope this makes sense to you.

it's most likely the blower resistor, which is located under the hood on the passengers side in the evaporator case. if you have manual a/c heat control this is a cheap fix, if you have auto temp control it is a very expensive part [around 200.00] good luck

I have a 1981 Lincoln Town car, with a 460 motor, 5.0. Where is the knock sensor located at? Thanks in advance.


I don't think an '81 would have a knock sensor. I don't think this car would even have an engine computer. And by the way, a 460 motor is not a 5.0 liter, it is much bigger, a 5.0 L ford engine would be the small block 302 cu. in. engine.
