View Full Version : Knock Sensor replacemnet

After repairing my knock sensor (soldering and JB weld) been wondering if there is a suitable replacement or a way to modify a more readily available one?

I see the 3.0/3.2 (E5TF-AA) has a Hz of 6.0k vs our 5.7k or the 5.0 (E3AF-AA) with is 5.45k. Are these close enough to either use or try and change their resonance?

I'd like to know how you got it because I check the website and says not available.

company websites like that dont always list all parts available but most common to cars on road at that time call and i bet they will find what you are looking for.GOOD LUCK

I think I saw the correct part available at www.fastpartsnetwork.com (a Ford dealer's website). Could be wrong, but it's worth a try.

Just make sure you get the right one for your car based on the part number on the original from your motor. Each one had a different response frequency and was motor specific not year I believe.
