Unhappy Knock Sensor


I cross-threaded my new knock sensor into the block of my 1989 Camaro (5.0, Vin E)..................I got it in about half way. Question: Will this effect the sensor in any way, and is there a repair method available?

You likely didn't damage the threads in the block, but the sensor's threads are likely wiped. Get a new one. It should thread right in.

If you boogered the threads in the block, you can use a tap to cut new threads.
