In case you need to acquire more energy from the engine, advance the timing of the valves as much as your own system permits. To guide you in your task is the Nissan Xterra knock sensor. This part is a type of electronic control unit that takes action to the fuel-air pre-detonation by generating electrical voltage once it actually is afflicted. The electrical current it creates is regulated by your engine computer. Right at the first manifestation of damage, this computer sets off a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) or in VVT vehicles, instantly retards the pre-set Variable Valve Timing (VVT) of the automobile.

If you will advance your VVT, make certain that the Nissan Xterra knock sensor is operating just great so that it can help you find the safer timing of the valves. Pinging is the noise that pressure waves in your cylinder leaves when it crashes on the cylinder walls or even the piston of your engine. This specific occurrence generally takes place when the actual valve timing is advanced beyond the limit. The sensor readily registers this because it is created from Piezoelectric components or crystals that acts to most impact effects by simply generating electrical current.

Once your Nissan Xterra knock sensor is bad, the engine computer is provided with inaccurate information. Look for Beck Arnley, Replacement, and Delphi replacement products for this sensor only here at Parts Train!
