SUBARU knock sensor - what is it?

The Subaru knock sensor is a device that outputs a signal that is read by the ECU (engine control unit) to determine if engine knock is present. If the ECU believes it is detecting engine knock, it then retards the ignition timing until knock is no longer detected.

Which SUBARU models are equipped with knock sensors?

SUBARU models starting around the early 1990’s have knock sensors. Typically any vehicle that has an ECU (engine control unit) utilizes a knock sensor. Vehicles that have a distributor / vacuum advance timing system do not typically have a knock sensor.

What does a SUBARU knock sensor look like?

A typical SUBARU knock sensor photo is at the right. The style has changed a few times, mainly in the connector.

Where is the SUBARU knock sensor located?

The typical location on a SUBARU vehicle is on the engine block somewhat near the throttle body. The photo at the right shows the typical SUBARU knock sensor location. On H6 engines the location is somewhat different

How to remove or replace a SUBARU knock sensor?

Knock sensor removal is fairly straightforward on the normally aspirated 1.8L, 2.2L and 2.5L. The service manual says to remove a bunch of parts including the intake manifold, but it is really not necessary. With a flexible socket extension the knock sensor is fairly simple to remove. A 3/8″ drive setup works well.

What problems can a faulty SUBARU knock sensor cause?

There are two main types of issues the knock sensor can encounter:

    1. Problems that cause the MIL/CEL (malfunction indicator lamp/check engine light) to turn on; and,

 

  1. Problems that do not cause the MIL/CEL to illuminate.

We will look at these issues in more detail below.

SUBARU knock sensor problems that cause the MIL/CEL to illuminate

Generally codes P0325, P0326, P0327, and/or P0328 may be present.

    • P0325 Knock Sensor Circuit Malfunction

 

    • P0326 Knock Sensor Circuit Performance (might not be applicable to Subaru’s).

 

    • P0327 Knock sensor circuit low input

 

  • P0328 Knock sensor circuit high input

These codes mean the ECU has detected an electrical issue with the knock sensor circuit. It does not mean the ECU is detecting knock.

Problems that do not cause the MIL/CEL to illuminate

The ECU can only detect an electrical issue with the knock sensor circuit. The circuit may look ok to the ECU, but if the knock sensor itself is outputting faulty information that is still an issue.

For example, the output waveform from the knock sensor may look as if knock is occuring when in reality it is not. The result is the ECU retards timing. And retarded timing equals loss of power and fuel economy.

Cracked Subaru knock sensor

The Subaru knock sensor, especially from mid/late 90’s soobs, can develop a crack. It may or may not result in the MIL/CEL to come on. At the right is an image of a cracked Subaru knock sensor.

How often should I have my Subaru car's oil changed?

The short answer to this one is: it varies. One thing we can tell you is that almost no modern Subaru model needs an oil change every 3,000 miles, but beyond that, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” answer. Subaru oil change intervals can range as high as 7,500 miles between oil changes, but can vary vastly depending on your driving style and the conditions you drive in. Ultimately, it’s best to consult your owner’s manual or one of our certified Subaru service advisors here at Subaru of Macon to determine when you should change your car’s oil.

What type of oil should I use for my Subaru oil change?

Most Subaru models are recommended to use either 0w-20 synthetic oil or 5w-30 synthetic oil. By and large, synthetic oil keeps your Subaru car’s engine cleaner and performs better in extremely high and extremely low temperatures. At our Macon, GA Subaru service center, we generally used synthetic oil for most Subaru oil changes, but we do have conventional oil available at your request.

How can I tell if I need to have the brakes replaced on my Subaru?

In many cases, if your Subaru car’s brakes need to be replaced, you’ll hear it or you’ll feel it. Oftentimes, sounds like squeaking or squealing will indicate that your brake pads are worn down, while indicators like a pulsing brake pedal may mean that your brake rotors are warped and need to be replaced. In any case, Subaru brake issues are a serious issue, so if you suspect you might have brake trouble, schedule your next service appointment with our Macon, GA Subaru service center as soon as possible.

How often should I check my Subaru car's fluids?

That can vary depending on the fluid. For easily checked fluids like engine oil and coolant, it’s all too easy to pop the hood and check the dipstick or indicators on the reservoir every other time you gas up your car.For other fluids like transmission fluid and brake fluid, you can check them monthly  by following the instructions in your owner’s manual. However, if you find you vehicle is leaking fluid, get in touch with our team at the Subaru of Macon service center as soon as possible. Oftentimes, it’s just water or condensation from your car’s climate control system, but in rarer cases it could be fuel, so make sure to consult with a trained professional Subaru technician before driving it again.

How often should I have the cabin air filter replaced in my Subaru?

If your Subaru needs its cabin air filter replaced, you’ll often notice odd or stale smells coming from its ventilation system.  Another clear sign that your cabin air filter needs to be replaced is weak airflow coming from one or more vents. Fortunately, replacing the cabin air filter in your Subaru only takes a few minutes, and can often be completed while you wait in our service waiting area here at Subaru of Macon.

What Are Tire Rotations & How Are They Important to My Subaru?

Tire rotations are one of those common maintenance items that most people know about and then promptly ignore-but we’re here to tell you that’s not a good idea! Tire rotations actually prolong the lifespan of your tires altogether, so far from being a waste of time or money, they can actually save you measures of both.

When you drive, your tires take quite the beating, and a little wear and tear is expected where the rubber literally meets the road. After a while, however, this wear and tear can start to get excessive, affecting traction, performance, or even fuel efficiency. When you rotate your tires regularly, you change where the tire is coming into contact with the pavement, changing where the wear occurs, and thereby extending the life of your tires.

How Can I Tell If My Tires Need Rotated or Replaced?

While most folks can spot a bald tire, being able to tell when it’s time to rotate or replace your treads is a more nuanced skill. Luckily, there’s a trick-you may have heard it called The Penny Test; true to its name, this little trick uses a penny to see if your tire treads are worn too much to be safe.

  • Take the penny and insert it “hat first” into the tire treads with Lincoln’s head facing you
  • If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, that means you should probably replace your tires because the treads are less than 2/32 of an inch, which can start to get dangerous.
  • If you can see some of Lincoln’s head, it’s time to start thinking about a rotation. This is especially true if you perform this trick on multiple places on the same tire and the tread depths seem different in each place.

How do I check the coolant?

  • Your car’s coolant is essentially what keeps your Subaru from overheating. Coolant is also called antifreeze and like the name suggest, it has essential benefits in cold days. That is why it is recommended that you check your Subaru car, coupe or SUV coolant three times a year.To check your coolant, you will need to open the hood of your Subaru. In most cars, there is a coolant overflow tank next to the radiator of your Subaru. This tank is made of white plastic, so, you will be able to peer inside and check the levels. A proper level indicator should be located on the side of the tank so you can adequately see if your car needs more coolant.places on the same tire and the tread depths seem different in each place.

What Coolant Should I Use

If your car needs coolant, do not add it straight to your tank. Engines take a 50/50 mixture of coolant and water. This is generally sold already mixed. The specific coolant that you need depends on the year of your Subaru model.

If you own a 1999 to 2008 SOHC 2.5-liter Subaru then you should use the O.E> Subaru Long Life Coolant, colored green. If your Subaru is newer than a 2008 model then it would be best to use the Super long life coolant. While you’re not supposed to add the coolant directly, most coolant is already sold pre-mixed. Be sure to consult with the folks at our parts center when shopping for your Subaru part for the most accurate information.

How Do I Refill My Coolant

To fill your coolant, find the white plastic coolant tank. Uncap the top and fill the tank with your coolant mixture. Continue to fill the tank until you see that is has reached the limit indicated on the side of the tank. If you are having trouble finding your coolant tank or finding the right coolant for your car, call or stop by our parts center. One of our friendly staff members will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
