GTV misfire? cause knock sensor
hi peeps, wondering if anyone could help me out
my 3.0 gtv started to give me a really bad misfire the other day during my journey, so i pulled over turned the car off, put it back on then the misfire went away. i carried on with my journey all fine I then decided to give it some and again the problem came back. i turned the car off back on and its been fine so far. i put the laptop on and I got this message.
The ECU does not receive correctly the signal from the signalled knock sensor. Probably the harness is interrupted or a SC is present, or the sensor itself does not work correctly. Check the harness and connections condition and check the sensor functioning by means of an oscilloscope or a voltmeter in V/PEAK by beating on the sensor clamping screw.
NOTE: it is necessary to comply with the driving torque of the sensor since an improper torque may alter the sensor correct functioning
The reason for this fault is that ECU has received very low signal from the sensor. The fault is present now. Take appropriate action to fix this sensor fault. Dashboard warning light was not activated for this fault.
now what i need to know is if its the knock sensor causing the problem or something else and if it is the knock sensor how many does the 3.0 gtv have and any tips on how to change them or test them.
any help would be appreciated
