Q: Inner core of knock sensor broken

asked by on

It seems like the inner core part of the knock sensor has separated from the outer casing.

Hello. It sounds like something hit the knock sensor, which caused the inner core to become exposed. This can be a result of running over something while driving. The knock sensor will need to be replaced by a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic.
