Advancing the valve timing of the engine improves the combustion stroke and thereby, the generated power. Your current Buick Lacrosse knock sensor will ensure you don't exceed the limitation that the engine allows. The part is a kind of electronic control unit that responds on your fuel-air pre-detonation by producing voltage once it actually is afflicted. This sensor uses this impact-produced current to alert your engine computer. From the first sign of damage, this computer sets off the exact Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) or immediately corrects the Variable Valve Timing (VVT) of your automobile.
If you'll advance the VVT, make certain that your Buick Lacrosse knock sensor is functioning just fine so that it can help you locate the safe timing of your own valves. It'll detect pinging in your engine right at the first indication that means pressure waves are already leaving the ignition point too soon that it crashes to your cylinder walls or on the piston. It's a happening that's specific to super-advanced VVT. But what get the sensor capable for its task is the Piezoelectric materials used to build it.
When your Buick Lacrosse knock sensor is busted, your engine computer is given incorrect information. Find Beck Arnley, Replacement, and Delphi direct-replacement products in place of your sensor only here at Parts Train!
