hello how do i knock back (retard) timing on my sohc 1.5 x3?
As the car is pinging even on light load.

Also i have put a pod filter on, but there was a temp sensor in the airbox which had to be disconected. Is that temp sensor thing needed? its been fine for about 1 year with it disconected.

thnx

Don't these cars have knock sensors on them?? Even my 2000 Accent knocks sometimes but for a few sec's and it vanishes

ignition timing is controlled only by the ecu

if it is pinging then the computer will retard timing for you based on the reading from your knock sensor

it baffles me that accents would be suffering from preignition but gas sucks nowadays so that might be the cause.

you shouldn't suffer any long term casualities since hopefully your ecu is doing what its supposed to do.
