    The wire harness and sensors themselves are susceptible to damage from both water and poor routing. Was the car parked outside all that time?

    Thank you, and yes the person I purchased it from had it sitting outside with a cover over it, the car runs perfect I was just wondering if I should get it changed admittedly could it cause more damage to the motor?

    Have you checked any of the wiring to see if they were chewed up? Just to be safe, check as rodents could have nested under the cowl by crawling underneath the car and climbing up onto the engine.

    Best to install GM knock sensors if you have to replace them (there are 2 under the intake). Other members have had issues with aftermarket sensors.

    Just keep your foot out of it and you'll be fine. All they do is send a signal to the PCM when detonation is detected and the PCM pulls ignition timing to compensate.

    Another thing: when removing the intake manifold, be sure to remove the oil pressure sending unit as to not break it.

    Possibly reset itself. I would clear the code and keep an eye on that light just to be safe.

    Another thing to look at is the actual knock sensor harness that is under the intake as it is pretty common for folks to crush those wires when re-installing the intake.
