    So the knock sensor uses a Piezo crystal, similar to Piezo guitar pickups. Did not know that. Thank you.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hubie Casteel says:

    I done that repair on my brother inlaws cruize that was fun laying on my back on my garage floor, the other fun fix is the thermostat on that car… Ray I enjoy your videos sir and the content… Keep it up can't wait for the next one…

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hiro Miya says:

    At least you didn’t have to remove the intake.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Number 6. says:

    There should be a trouble code for a trashy interior! Why must a video be about some thing.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bogey says:

    Ray, I know this is family friendly but please forgive me. Your uploads rain sooooo much knowledge on us shade tree mechanics out here! I'm a huge fan and you have given me the confidence to tackle anything! Thanks for all your hard work.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mary Mulrooney says:

    I wonder if customers say just install it, no computer diagnostic, because they think you will do the diag anyway and not charge them because they said no.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pete Jersic says:

    Aside from dealer parts…aftermarket part's are an affordable way to keep your car on the road. Buying your parts from the same parts store the repair shops buy from..and yes even the dealers buy from the parts stores. So I laugh when a shop states it won't warranty the repair due to the customer bringing in "his/hers" parts..I agree some after market part brands are a better product..better quality..and you'll pay$ for it. If I buy front brake pads at Napa. Then bring them to a repair shop for onstseqq

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hollywood Hates Jesus says:

    Go ahead and replace the thermostat housing and cam sensors, you know why. I rarely see the knock sensor code on those.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BMAK79 says:

    POS Cruze. Leaking all that crude.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars daniel velez says:

    I dotn know many mech that don't constantly talk to them self anyways. It's our way for sure ramble on my man

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars daniel velez says:

    Personal favorat ratchet right there

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Bowman says:

    You'll love the Cruze diesel the first time a glow plug breaks off and ends up in a cylinder.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars B A says:

    Just like an old timer said to: "Always use jack stands and not a hydraulic jack to hold up a car.
    Or, you'll never get as old as me."

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Eastmead says:

    Ramble On

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Kennedy says:

    Ray never apologize for your arm getting in the way.
    You're producing Mechanics Porn, don't apologize for the camera sitting on the dresser.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Loughren says:

    Thanks for the info on the lift. I did not know how they function.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher Sines says:

    That little o ring holds the whole car you say, simply amazing.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A Good Neighbor Auto repair 2 says:

    Very nice, safely first, blessings

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars CRAZY HORSEPOWER says:

    PIECE OF ADVICE be very careful with a lift with those type pads I had on fail on a Ford van the rear pad failed and almost drop the vehicle off the lift. I have very little trust for the manufacturer of your lift.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scott bradley says:

    The knock sensors in used to (Cummins CNG) look similar. But are super sensitive to not using non-factory mounting hardware, as well as torque spec. Which I believe is something like 17.25 lbft…

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RPS2443 says:

    I had a manual 2011 Cruze with the 1 4T engine. Just totalled it last year at 220k when I hit a deer. Great car, other than 4 valve cover replacements because of the crappy PCV design. Keep up the great videos!

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars numberyellow says:

    Yeah, all i'm getting here is parts cannon, lifts are dangerous, don't be an idiot, and something about fries….

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Books says:

    Fingering the hole…

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars It's a Dogs life... says:

    Hi Ray. interestingly enough, that car would probably fail its "warrant-of-fitness" here in New Zealand because of the dent in the sill. If its greater than 40mm in diameter it would fail the "warrant" check till repaired or replaced.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jose Luis Ruiz says:

    I can hear you talking about a the threads of a bolt hole for an hour and I would be entertained.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Thomas Vlaskamp III says:

    "Found the hole with my finger"

    I dont think you should be sharing bedroom stories at work but alright

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars travis myers says:

    Tighten knock sensor to 10 N·m (7 ft. lbs.) you said 15 why twice the torque this is what fucks people up that cant even check oil lol lol @rainman ray's repairs

    Even rambling is good!! A lot can be learned/taught when rambling!!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars How About says:

    From Australian avid viewer. Feel free to use the following: Hood equals Bonnet, Fender equals Mud Guard, Trunk equals Boot. Also we insist in driving on the left of the road. Ford and GM no longer manufactured down under. Chrysler quit some time ago. Thanks.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jesse Rafters says:

    Thanks for the lift point tutorial!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kasy Delrio says:

    I have the same code

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars COVID 2020 says:

    Dude needs to fix that oil leak

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars COVID 2020 says:

    In aviation maintenance we have to attend Human Factors training and Complacency is one of the biggest reasons alot of bad things happen

    Ramble safety about lift safety to install knock sensor

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blake Schluchter says:

    If you ever want to not have a knock sensor code on a heavily modified motor, place an o ring on the bolt between the sensor and the block. Works great to keep a light off when you have a gear drive, big cam, solid motor mounts…etc

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Netherlands031 says:

    Wait, those lift 'feet' do not lock in their upright position? That's pretty unsafe.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Wilson says:

    You have issues with that phone

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jay Anolik says:

    A heavy duty mechanic was killed up at the university , he was using automotive Jack Stands on a 950 loader , got squished like a bug . Safety is paramount.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Number 6. says:

    I am bothered by the negitive side of that arguement. What if the cheap new part is defective and the old quality part is still good, or what if both parts are bad? What if both sensors are still good and something else is wrong.
    Versus the optimistic assumption that the new part is good and the old part is bad and there is nothing else wrong. As you can see probibility is against the customer guessing right all unknowns being equal . Yes some unknowns will not be equal but we don't know that.
    This video is about the value of diagnostics and the safety of the same!

    Germans don't build Chevy's , they leave that to the Americans. Never run a dirty diesel. Diesel , die with a sell.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Samuel James says:

    If I remember correctly the oil filter is right behind that alternator, but I could be mistaken.

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Seabert says:

    My daughters 2013 Malibu with 200,000 miles on it has all sorts of idiot lights on but it runs fine. I did replace the front brakes and rotors last month. I want to take it to the part store to have the codes checked out but think like you said that it will just be misdiagnosed and will waste money. Last car I worked on was back in 1996 when I owned a 73 coupe deville. My track record on that isn’t stellar so I’m not bragging.
