English term or phrase: knock sensor
A car knock sensor is located on the intake manifold, cylinder, or engine block. The purpose of the knock sensor is to sense unusual pulsations caused by the engine detonation. It is basically the computer’s ear to the engine to determine if it is working properly.
To get a better understanding of how a faulty knock sensor reacts, note the points below:
One symptom of a bad knock sensor is the engine doesn’t feel right while driving at speed, or while the vehicle is carrying a light or heavy load. If you notice something seems off with your vehicle, even if no light illuminates, it is best to have your car checked out by a mechanic.
A bad knock sensor may also not let the engine accelerate properly while driving on the highway, and cause the vehicle to lose fuel mileage. If you notice these things happening, you should have a certified mechanic from YourMechanic inspect why the car is slow to accelerate.
