so my SES light came on today , went to auto zone to use the odb scanner and pulled a P0327. guy told me it was the oxygen sensor before the cat, but my book says its the knock sensor. book says its located IN the engine block, under the cylinder heads. :confused:
is it something someone with little mechanical skills can take care of , or is it best to take it to the shop? i would imagine , if its inside the engine , alot of labor would be involved. :(
