I took the truck to Autozone, they ran the meter it came out that the Knock Censor is defective. The book I have shows the knock censor is under the exhaust manifold on the 2000 / v6 and the header has to be removed to replace it.
I took it by a garage (I occasionally do business with) and they quoted me a price, but said the would have to scan it again, as they have know AZone to be wrong many times. When AZone scanned it I read the code with them, and then read the computer results and it definitely shows as the knock censor defective. What I'd like to know is if the light is not blinking, and / or staying lit, is it safe to drive it a couple, maybe three more hundred miles until I can get the money to have it done? Or will it just drop me somewhere?
