Acura Knock Sensor
Your Acura knock sensor is an important part of protecting your combustion system and keeping your fuel usage at its most efficient. What the Acura knock sensor does is to detect the vibration caused by engine knocking and pinging. Engine knock and ping is often caused by an improperly timed burn and when the fuel is igniting too early, it is often doing so in the wrong place. Without the Acura knock sensor, which signals the main computer of the vehicle to make the necessary changes to the timing of the burn as well as to adjust the air-to-fuel ratio, if necessary, serious and expensive damage can be done to combustion system parts, such as the pistons. Aside from risking damage that will consume much more of your time and money than will replacing a faulty Acura knock sensor, a malfunctioning Acura knock sensor can contribute to poor fuel economy and a general decrease in performance, as proper fuel burn is essential to achieving high standards of performance.
