2007 5.3 Replacing Knock Sensors

Postby 55Woodie [OP] » Nov 06 2013, 1:53am

Going in . . . Wish me luck :lol:

The parts arrived today and tonight is intake manifold removal and cleaning off the gasket remains.

Tomorrow night is the re-assembly process. Any tips from the experts? ? ?

Piece of cake and about 4.5 hours of cleaning parts and pieces. Bank 2 sensor totally rusted . . . and found an unbelievable number of chipmunk storage cache of acorns and beech nuts on and around the intake manifold.

Chipmunks left those for you to munch on while working. :lol:
I'm not a member of the "good old boy" clan and I don't drink their kool aid.
Because severely hydrocracked Group III oils have properties very similar to Group IV oils, they are also called synthetic.
