In case you wish to acquire more electrical power through your engine, advance the timing of the valves to as much as your own system permits. Your current Mercury Grand Marquis knock sensor will make sure you won't exceed the limitation that the engine can allow. This component is a kind of electronic control unit that takes action on your fuel-air pre-detonation by producing current the moment it is disturbed. The actual electrical current it makes is followed by the engine computer. In this case, an engine computer operates to retard the timing of the engine valves in reply to the knock sensor alarm, or, in older vehicles, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is actually initiated.
When you advance the VVT, make certain that the Mercury Grand Marquis knock sensor is operating perfectly so that it will help you find the secure timing of your valves. Pinging is the sound which pressure waves in your engine develops when it collides on the cylinder walls or even the piston of your own engine. It typically develops when your valve timing is advanced beyond the limit. The sensor easily registers the occurrence of pinging since it is created from Piezoelectric components or crystals that reacts to influences by simply producing current.
If the Mercury Grand Marquis knock sensor is undoubtedly poorly manufactured or perhaps already defective, your engine is at stake. Find Beck Arnley, Replacement, and Delphi replacement parts in exchange to your sensor at Parts Train!
