The V-10 or 5.9 V-8 didn't use them but the others did. As per the '03
FSM, knock sensors are used only with 3.7L V-6, 4.7L V-8 and 5.7L V-8
engines. On 3.7L V-6 and 4.7L V-8 engines, the 2 knock sensors are
bolted into the cylinder block under the intake manifold. On 5.7L V-8
engines, 2 knock sensors are also used. These are bolted into each side
of the cylinder block (outside) under the exhaust manifold.
I don't believe he does. But - as usual, when confronted with facts that
prove him completely wrong (reference the gear-swap thread, where he swore
that Dodge used a GM 8.25" IFS on the 3rd gen 1500's), he'll simply clam up
and slink away....
... until the next outrageous claim, of course.
I'm sorry I should have clarified some. the engine family that existed with
the v10 in the br/be trucks and prior did not. I was not thinking of current
engine family with that statement.
that was my error.
<sigh> Unfortunately, I suspect that piece of information will elude us for
all eternity - much like the mysteries of Stonehenge, Atlantis, and the
pyramids of Egypt. This is yet another in a great series of mysteries that
man will never fully understand.
