    Thank you for your help, I am using a broadband 1.5 connection, My computer uses Vista (which I don't like at all). I have Internet Explorer. I don't have to be doing any thing and my internet displays a message that it is trying to connect to the internet again. It will do this every few minuets (like 6 times in an hour) and it disrupts any thing I am doing on my computer. I talked to my internet provider and spent 45 minuets with the tech. His finial decision was that it is my operating system

I'd like to assist. As I understand it, you seem to be browsing the Internet but you may be receiving errors saying something alone the lines of Page Cannot Be Displayed. Is this correct? If not, please clarify.

Also, kindly let me know:

  • Whether you have broadband Internet or dial-up
  • What is your operating system (such as XP, Vista, etc)?
  • What Internet browser you are using (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc)?
  • What you are trying to do when this happens
  • Any error messages displayed
I'll then be able to help you further with this information.

Best regards

    Thank you for your reply.

    This sounds more of a hardware, driver or line issue rather than the operating system. Does your Internet come through USB modem connected to your computer, or via a router? Whichever device it is, please provide the make and model and I'll do my best.

    If you can, also visit this speed test site and click Begin Test. Watch the needle as it conducts the speed test. It should climb to your maximim speed and stay there. If so, let me know the results. If it fluctuates very badly, let me know.

    I look forward to your reply.

    With regards

    Thank you for providing this information.

    Unfortunately that is a very poor download speed. It can be caused by either a very long (20m+) ADSL line going from your phone socket to your router, or most commonly, by your phone line quality (this is supposed to be your internet service provider's responsibility and you should be able to get them to send over an engineer to have a look.

    Your computer should not disconnect from the Internet so frequently, and everything seems to be to do with the line somewhere.

    Is your Internet a cable service or an ADSL service (ADSL meaning it is going through your phone socket)? If ADSL or any other type of DSL (most likely), does the line going from your router to the phone socket have a microfilter fitted? A microfilter looks like this.

    Hope to hear from you.

    Best regards

Knocking noise

First confirm the oil level is adequate by checking the dip stick. If the oil level is okay you may have a partial blockage that is starving the oil line leading to the sensor. Missed regularly scheduled oil changes may result in this happening.
If sludge is the problem your dealer can recommend an oil additive that may clear out the problem.
You may also have a failed sensor as well.

What is ECU

The knock sensor is commonly located on the engine block and essentially listens for improper combustion when the engine is running. Engine knock, or spark knock, is the noise created when the combustion process is erratic or abnormal. Code p0330 indicates that the knock sensor has picked up a frequency outside of the factory-set frequency range for the combustion chamber. The computer uses information from the knock sensor to adjust the engine ignition timing to keep combustion within the safe zone of operation. In general, when the knock sensor code is set, the computer will put the engine into limp mode to help prevent engine damage.

Where is the anit-knock sensor on a 1996 4 cyl toyota camry

Should be on the side of the block facing the firewall. It may or may not be contacting coolant so you may have to drain the radiator.
Keep in mind knock sensors almost never fail. You may have an engine component making a noise or vibration the sensor is picking up.
The sensor is supposed to sense spark knock and tell the computer to adjust the spark timing down.

My 2000 yukon knock sensor code came up. the shop said $ 700 to replace. the 5.3 motor runs great. Does this need replacing?

the engine has two knock sensors they are mounted under the intake manifold, $700 sounds a bit high , i think i would price around, as to the question do you have to replace them, NO, but they are there it aid in the ignition control if the engine spark knocks these sensors are there to sense this. and also if one of the sensors is always reading as if the engine is spark knocking then the on-board computer will keep trying to ****** the timing and this will effect you power, and fuel millage.

Engine knock when starting

This is not uncommon with higher mileage engines. Use the AC Delco oil filter and a heavier grade oil to aid in compensating for wear. The heavier grade will stick around in the lifters longer. The right oil filter will aid in keeping line pressure too avoid start up knock.
