Hello fellow enthusiasts!

Cylinder 4 misfire
&
Knock sensor was activated

I have already:

replaced spark plugs, wires, rotor & distributor cap

Any ideas whats wrong?

thanks in advance,

Bad knock sensor.

Cheap gas.

Hows it running.

Overheating--replace thermostat and flush coolant.

Check timing.

Have fuelinjectors cleaned.

Check the resistance of the injector on that cylinder. I have seen a lot of knock sensor codes stored on the ecm's but they don't usually set a check engine light. I would just be concerned with the cylinder misfire. If you fix that and clear the code I think you will be fine.

help

thanks for your suggestions...

my car was running fine- no performance/power loss.

when i reset the codes, the fuel economy crapped out.

other than that, right now it runs fine.
