Customer Question
Will a bad knock...

Will a bad knock sensor cause the cam sensor to act up on a '97 chevy 5.7

Mechanic's Assistant: Which particular sensor are you asking about? And have any trouble codes been triggered?

I was trying to time it with a scanner using "cam retard" and the degrees constantly showed -45

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '97 Chevy?

Chevy 1500 with 5.7 vortec

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

?

Mechanic's Assistant: What confuses you?

Are you familiar with cam retard?

Mechanic's Assistant: No. I'm the Chevy Mechanic's Assistant.

So how are you helpful then?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thats all thanks
