How do I test the knock sensor?
« on: 21:43, Mon 07 September 2009 »
does anyone know how to check the knock sensor is functioning properly?

I seem to have what I suspect is slight pinking when revved from idle and under load at low revs and would like to check it's working correctly.

Probably best with a timing light then tap the sensor to see if the ignition retards.

great, that's what the Haynes says. I'll get hold of a timing light and see if it's working.
