Customer Question

location of Knock Sensor on 1994 Z71 5.7 V8 4X4. I have a consistant code 43 and intermitant dash light warning. I've seen some comments like at rear of engine near starter. I guess I wonder where in relation to starter? Down near the pan up near the head?

AZ I overhauled the starter a couple weeks ago, is it possible that I may have broke the sensor or knocked the wire off reinstalling the starter. I was a GM tech years ago, just before they remove tongue from the front 8-)

Glad to have helped. Been with Buick, Pontiac and GMC for 13 (still green!! LOL) years now. Sad to see Pontiac go, will cut our buisness down by a 1/3, and buisness sucks as it is right now anyway. But, it will turn back around soon, I hope!! Thats why I'm on here during my free time, make a little extra spending money. Take care, nice to have met you!!
