Can I get a "ballpark" price for changing a knock sensor on a 1997 Mercury Villager (mileage 166,000)? Thanks!

Welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X'm here to help get your problem resolved. It is a fairly big job, it takes 5.2 hours book rate to replace and part is around $250. Most shops charge around $100 a hour so that is $520 labor + $250 for part = around $770 total. If you call around you can probably find part for $150 and a shop that charges 60-80 a hour labor which will help. Let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

What effect does this part have on drive-ability?
Not much, it may lose a little performance and mileage but you will be ok to continue to drive. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks Bonnie.
