Icon5 what is this! looks important.

In the process of taking my intake manifold and how honda places bolts in really tight spaces, this came off with it just hanging on by a thin wire. What is it? It looks like a sensor but for what? Or maybe it isnt. :( Help.

Knock sensor


yes, it's important.


Yes, it's expensive.


Yes, you are better off getting one from Honda vs an aftermarket parts store brand

It ripped mine off when I swapped my engine. I just soldered the wires back into place instead of buying a new one ~$135.

It's been over two years and no problems yet.

Re: what is this! looks important.

Honda one = $135, lasts 15 years.

Part store = $75, lasts a year or less.

Do the math...

Oh, and they tend to last longer if you use thread tape or similar..reduces vibrations that tend to cause pre-mature failure in some cases.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
