Topic: Service done, now car dont feel the same

hi guys

ive done the service on my car about 2 weeks back, I had also found that the wire for the knock sensor was out

anyway, now that everything was done, there is no management light coming on, but the car feels rather sluggish, it takes too long to rev up, I had taked out the induction manifold to get to the knock sensor,

any ideas as to why its feeling sluggish?

u running aftermath ECU? is u still running stock ecu, i think u should use it the knock sensor boss, it helps the ecu retart or advance timing whenever knock is detected by the sensor.

stock ecu, the knock sensor wire was out so I connected the wire back, still got the knock sensor

Re: Service done, now car dont feel the same

depends on the plugs, normal plugs wont last that long for sure. Iridium will last about that or more

this problem only started after I did the service, and connected that wire back to the knock sensor ../../extensions/custom_smilies_2/img1/blink

Re: Service done, now car dont feel the same

i think before u put the wire back the knock sensor wsnt working but now that its working maybe its picking up a knock and retarding the timing therefore the car is sluggish
