P0325 Knock Sensor Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at:
Wells YouTube (great videos I recommend you subscribe)
As you can see by the title this video covers the diagnosis and repair of a
P0325 on my 1997 Subaru Legacy L model with 2.2L engine backed by an auto
trans. I did have some trouble with the 'factory' diagnostic procedure but
thankfully my friend Mark at Wells Electronics had a test that involved a
voltage drop across the sensor that worked perfectly. I hope this video
illustrates the import ants of understanding a circuit that you're
diagnosing as opposed to just throwing parts at something, with a little
time and effort you can do a proper diagnosis.

Listening for a cracked valve spring retainer on your KLZE
The KLZE from the factory comes with weak valve springs, but a high rev
limiter which isn't uncommon for a ZE to crack a retainer due to valve
float. This video is just to show what it will sound like if such a thing
should ever happen. You will know what to hear. BTW, my timing belt
tensioner is a little bit on the loose side but you can still hear the
mechanical ticking noise which is the cracked retainer.
Millenia Update: BAD NEWS! **9/19/2010**
I'm no mechanic, but believe me when I say this, I feel I've made a HUGE
mistake by buying this car. Both catalytic converters are pretty much
toast. The car still cranks, runs and drives good but I know it could drive
a lot better than it does. My fuel mileage has dropped dramatically and
it's not looking good. I dont want to have to keep going from car to car,
but honestly, if this keeps up, that might just have to be the way I go.
If anyone out there has one of the following cars for sale and you're
willing to trade for my Millenia, and you're in DFW, let me know:
1999-2005 Grand Am GT 4DR
2000-2003 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V
1997-2001 Nissan Maxima SE
ANY LATE 90's TO 2000's CAR (NO TRUCKS OR SUVs) W/ A MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Thanks for watching everyone!
1996 Mazda Millenia with Broken Idler
Before I knew what the sound was I tried to locate where it was coming from
in the engine compartment. You can hear me open the throttle a bit to hear
how the sound changes at higher RPM.
I had broken an idler pulley while accelerating in low gear. Half of the
plastic outer casing on the metal pulley wheel had come off. That threw off
my timing really badly.
This is the Millenia base model with the 2.5L KL engine.
