OK were on the engine is the knock sensor ?
I assume it would be the smart thing to change both ?
The car has the air ride that will not lower a speed instead it rises and when it is parked the front struts lose air over night sometimes and sometimes not for 4 or 5 days. The rear air bags are fine. Any suggestions?
To check them you will need to turn the air ride switch OFF(located in trunk on left side).
To check front sensors, jack front up and remove the front tires, then remove the front wheel splash shields to access the ridde height sensors.
Are there any code readers on the market that read the air ride codes?
The one I have only reads the engine codes
Sorry for the long delay.
I have the parts now .
