Knock sensor for Honda 1998 Accord LX


Duplicate question.
I doubt the sensor would make the engine stop running. The computer would slow down the spark timing to prevent engine knock, but not shut it off.

Wont start when hot until cool


Also, consider seriously about replacing the water pump. I have a friend with this exact car, and they had the same problem - the water pump was literally "gone" - when it was pulled and shown to me, I was amazed at the condition - this was the factory water pump and if you can picture what fan blades look like, imagine the fan without the complete blades - they were completely corroded and the pump was seized up - make sure you drive as little as possibe, as this friend had driven on it with the pump in that condition for months, which in turn caused a blown head gasket as well as several other mechanical problems.

Power steering stopped working, battery light came on, car overheated on a 2001 taurus: being told by mechanic that the air conditioner compressor needs to be replaced. Sounded to like the belt needs to...


unforutionatly your mechanic may be right if the ac compressor locked up it will eat the belt and make the other things not work like the water pump ,altanator,power steering.esay to check though remove belt see if you can turn the ac pump by hand.if you mechanic is worth his salt he will even show you this.

Stalls when coming to a stop


Mine stalled when I stopped and it was the Idle Speed Motor. If it only stalls when you stop, I would check that before messing with the fuel filter or pump.

1998 ford taurus overheating the hose from the water pump appears to have no pressure in it. Is this due to a failed water pump?


More than likely the radiator cap is defective and not holding pressure. Replace it first and see if if solves the problem.

Overheating


turning on your ac turns on ac cooling fan which draws more air thru the radiator, but in this case i would replace water pump.
