Knock sensor rusts bad

Recommended Posts

99 Response. Monsoon engine.

About the 3rd time or so over the years that the end threads on the knock sensor rust out bad and it won't go back in when I drain the block for the winter. Gotta buy another one.

Anyway to prevent this?

Should I worry about the threads on the engine side?

Thanks Crew!!

I haven't had that problem, I usually coat the threads with Teflon pipe sealant.  Have you tried wire brushing the threads to clean them up?

Engine block threads should be ok, but easy enough to chase with a thread cutter.

Knock sensor suffers from galvanic corrosion, dissimilar metal, electrical current, just plan to replace every couple years. The ones from places like bakes and ski dim last longer than from the autostart stores.

My new one arrives friday for the 05.

I inadvertently stripped the threads on one of my block plugs and need to replace it.  Does anyone know where I can get a replacement?  I searched Bakes but couldn't be certain which is right.
