What does your Knock read on your Sensor check menu? Mine reads around 430-530.
HAHAHA!! Yeah, when I talked to them on the phone - I wasn't inspired with confidence. I still would try Apexi. Maybe they have a tech support email or something. That thing wasn't cheap, they should give you some help, IMO.Originally posted by: DgnZCoug
And the folks that Ive talked to at Nopi know nothing except about VTECH this VTAK dat y0. Nopi would be the last place I go to if I needed something, they rip too many people off here in Atlanta, especially the Buford location.
There is most definitely a knock sensor.Originally posted by: gyger
If we do have a knock sensor and it automatically adjusts the timing to compensate for knock then
why is everyone getting custom chips burned? The ECM would do it it's self right?
I don't think we have a knock sensor. Someone get thier Ford CD Please.
That's what I read which is the opposite of what you are sayin Ken10/01/2003 11:15:07 AM Fastcougar
DanG may be correct. To my knowledge, all Cougars and All 99+ Contours do not have a knock sensor. The only way to be certain is to crawl under the Cougar and look at the rear header. Just above the "jack shaft" of the right hand half-shaft coming from the tranny and to the left of the rear header you may see this:
To pull timing as in retard it correct? so I wouldn't need to adjust my timing to run nitrous because it should recognize knockThe knock sensor is a device used by the PCM to determine when to PULL timing. (I.E. hence the name!) It does not have any affect on increasing spark timing.
I honestly dont look at that when Im spraying heh, but I will look into it tommorrow evening. But like I said, after about an hour or so of driving the numbers do go up about 15-25 respectively, but I still dont know what is normal ? What ill do is call my shop guy and ask him where he tapped into and what he thinks. That may solve some of this mystery.Originally posted by: GrandMasterKhan
What does your KnockSensor read while you spray? It may be a good idea to compare the normal driving to N20 readings just for referance
