JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Chevy. The Chevy Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: I tested the ohms and the mV through the knock sensors
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Chevy Mechanic should know about your Chevy?
Customer: no. everything is stock. the PO332 has been on for about a year and a half and I just finally decided to tear into it to replace them. so idk if maybe the time could have messed up the pcm\
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Chevy Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

I'm working on it, my friend. Please give me a couple of minutes...

Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 1 year ago.

OK. Thanks for that and for all the details on your original post - you're the kind of customer us experts like to work with.

Seeing that you have already done everything you could do on the sensor side of things, there are only a few other possibilities left, most prominent being the PCM pulling the trigger a little too soon because it needs recalibration, or an actual engine noise triggering the sensor signal (the latter, most likely cold-start piston slap).

I'm going to ask you to play doctor with your truck. This is what I need you to do; first, go to a parts store and get yourself a Mechanic's Stethoscope. Wait for the following morning and safely put that 'scope right up to the block so it won't move when a helper starts the engine. If you hear those pistons slap, you've found the cause. If there is no engine noise, then the PCM needs to be re-calibrated.

Best Regards.

replaced the knock sensors*

Well, looks like your posting speed is much faster than mine.

The reason I recommend the 'scope test on cold-start is because any potential engine noises will be exacerbated.

Best Regards.
