Continental has added eight new part numbers to their original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Knock Sensors line.
The sensors are the same part that the vehicle manufacturer uses and deliver the exact fit, form, and function as the original part, ensuring an easy installation and long service life.
Continental’s eight new Knock Sensor part numbers provide application coverage for some of the most popular domestic, European, and Asian makes and models on the road today.
The expanded line covers Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Infiniti, Jeep, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Mercury, Nissan, and Ram models ranging from 2000 to 2023.
The new sensors provide coverage for 28,814,500 vehicles in operation (VIO) in the United States and 2,438,395 vehicles in Canada.
“Our newly expanded line was developed to meet the growing need for reliable knock sensors on some of the most common vehicles on the road today,” noted Brendan Bachant, Continental Product Manager for Engine Management and Fuel.
“The original sensors can be prone to failure due to mechanical damage, excessive vibration, high engine temperatures, and corrosion. Continental has made these OEM sensors available to the aftermarket so that professional technicians can easily and confidently service the most common vehicles in the shop, like the Ford F-150 and Explorer, the Jeep Wrangler, and the Nissan Maxima and Altima. Technicians can be confident when choosing the Continental Knock Sensor that they will avoid comebacks.”
Knock sensors are designed to detect engine ping caused by pre-ignition and relay the information to the electronic control unit to adjust engine timing and help keep the engine running smoothly.
These sensors are an ideal repair for a rough running engine with a timing and knock sensor fault code and will help shops to restore the performance of their customers’ vehicles to OE specifications.
Continental Knock Sensors are built in International Organization for Standardization (ISO)-certified facilities to deliver the highest level of dependability.
