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.

1992 ford f150 xlt- when first started idle jumps from very low to very high repeatedly until warm. then idle is high


try un-plugging the IAC motor,then start it,if it idles low and stays there then replace the IAC motor----if no change then you may have a knock in the engine and the knock sensor is telling the computer to change the timing to compensate for spark knock due to low grade fuel,so it advances the timing back and forth due to too high of rpm then too low and the computer doesnt know how to smoothen it out that fast,but eventually does.The check engine light would usually come on in this case

Engins starts but idles high for about 2-3 sec. then stalls out


Sounds like the choke needs to be turned down slightly and the idle turned up?

Engine knocking.


Hi,my 92 prado started making a knocking sound recently,we couldn't pin it down to one spot in the engine.
The knocking was constant at low revs and then disapeared.
Turned out to be the tourque converter knob had bust of and eventually destroyed the fly wheel and the transmission pump.
Definatley check under top cover and also drop off the sump to check for loose nuts etc.
hope this helps.
