Question about 1996 Lexus ES 300
I have been told 'knox' sensor's need replacement @ nearly $700...?????
Upper part of motor needs to be taken off, etc..if I don't replace the sensor, could bend a valve??
The "knock sensor" adjusts timing. So bent valves could result if timing is way off. Your car would quit running before timing was that far off. $700 sounds high shop around.
