If you wish to create more power from your engine, advance the timing of the valves as far as the system permits. And to guide you with getting the task right is the Subaru Legacy knock sensor. This part is a type of electronic control unit that responds on your fuel-air pre-detonation by creating electrical voltage when it is afflicted. The particular voltage it makes is monitored by the engine computer. At the very first manifestation of irregularity, this computer triggers the exact Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) or perhaps quickly alters the Variable Valve Timing (VVT) of the car.
If you will advance the VVT, make sure that your Subaru Legacy knock sensor is operating perfectly so that it can help you locate the secure timing of your valves. Pinging is just the audible sound that pressure waves inside your combustion chamber creates if this crashes onto the cylinder walls or the piston of your engine. This specific occurrence usually happens when your valve timing is advanced too far. What make the sensor effective for the purpose would be the Piezoelectric components employed to construct it.
In the event the Subaru Legacy knock sensor is badly built or currently damaged, the engine is at stake. Look for Beck Arnley, Replacement, and Delphi direct-replacement solutions for this sensor here at Parts Train!
