Hello and Thank you for using JustAnswer.com
Was the whole intake removed to replace the knock sensor?
SORRY MY INTERNET WENT OUT? AIR INTAKE?
You took the plenum and intake off to change the knock sensor correct?
TOOK THE AIR VENT (FILTER) OFF AND WENT IN THROUGH THE SIDE WITH A SWIVEL RATCHET.
PUT THE NEW KNOCK SENSOR ON AND CAR DIDNT START...
TOOK THE NEW ONE OFF AND PUT THE OLD ONE BACK ON AND CAR STILL DIDNT START BUT WAS CRANKING BEFOREHAND.
ok, so you didn't remove the intake
Does the engine turn over and not start?
or does it not turn over at all?
IT DOES NOT TURN OVER...
It could be coincidence, but your starter may have failed.
Do you have someone who can help you
HOW WOULD I KNOW THAT THE STARTER FAILED?
That is what we are going to check. Do you have someone who can help you?
Lets try this.
What I would like you to do is find a long screw driver and place the blade on the starter, and tap it with a hammer while the person helping you holds the key in the crank position.
If the engine turns over then you know it's the starter
OK BUT FIRST HELP ME FIND THE STARTER..LOL..
that is right under the air intake duct on the top of the trans
OK WE WILL TRY THAT.
This is a stick?
THERE WAS A PLUG THAT WASNT CONNECTED UNDERNEATH THE AIR INTAKE...SHADE TREE MECHANICS
Let me guess, it was a gray connector.
That is what goes to the starter
THANKFUL YOU TOLD ME TO LOOK UNDER THE AIRINTAKE OR I WOULDNT HAVE FOUND IT...AND THE GUY LEFT CLUELESS. YES IT WAS A GREY CONNECTOR.
Yeah, that is to the starter
So you got it up and running now?
THANK YOU SO MUCH..MY CAR AND CELLPHONE ARE MY LIFELINE..I WAS BEGINNING TO GET SICK... I AM VERY PLEASED AND SATISFIED...HOW CAN I BE IN TOUCH WITH YOU SHOULD I EVER HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS...I WISH YOU WERE HERE IN CHARLOTTE AS I JUST MOVED HERE 2 MONTHS AGO AND DONT KNOW ANYBODY AT ALL AND THIS WAS SOMEBODY THAT I HAD MET AT THE PART STORE...AND I HAVE LITTLE KNOWLEDGE OF THIS CAR AS I BOUGHT IT 3 WEEKS AGO. IT SEEMS TO BE A GOOD CAR.
