    2000 WS6 brake booster hose routing

    New to site. Not too good with forums.

    Bought my TA in 2001. Now 13 years later 43000 I get a ses light. 327 code. Smog guy says its a knock sensor. I decide to change myself big mistake. I have worked on muscle cars but never this. No clearance and a nightmare. Took intake off (broke oil sensor with hose). Now my big problem is routing brake hose without breaking new sensor. Looked on line and nothing. Please help. Car is automatic so i have auto dip stick in the way too.

    Welcome to the site!

    Sorry, I do not have any pics of the hose routing. Best I could do would be to find an illustration in the service manual.

    I'm not explaining my problem correctly. I know the line goes behind the oil pressure sensor and into the brake booster. I need advice in how to route it without breaking sensor. It's an automatic car so dipstick is in way.

    I got the intake installed and car running with help of a friend. No SES light. Would the SES light come on instantly if there were any problems? I ran the car around the block a few times. Seems normal. Started it up a few times and all seems OK. Just wondering on SES light. I need to get it SMOGGed CA car.

    Each code has its own parameters -- some come on the first time a fault is detected and others need to see a fault a set number of times before illuminating the SES light.

    I would say you're fine if the light didn't come on. That booster hose has gotten pretty much everyone at some point I think. Welcome to the club.

    Passed smog. No codes according to smog place. Thanks for the posts. What a bad design. 1) for having such a cramped area to work in , 2) brake booster hose/oil pressure sensor combo 3) knock sensors that rust. Not happy w GM f body design.
