Q: Do I need a special tool to remove the knock sensor?

Does it take a special tool to take out a knock sensor ?

My car has 100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello. There does not appear to be any special tool required to remove the knock sensor on an 84 Corvette. Only the correct size socket should be needed in order to loosen and remove the sensor. The sensor is located on the block of the engine, just above the starter. You may have to remove a metal heat shield in order to access the sensor.
