I should be replacing my knock sensor soon. i just want to know where i can get some new intake gaskets. (cheaper the better)

also is there a way i can replace the knock sensor without having to take of the intake manifold?

You can get them from any autoparts store. O'reilly's for example. Just give them a call in advance so they can get it in stock(usually takes a few hours, or at most the next day). Shouldn't cost more than $3.

As for replacing the knock sensor: It's not likely. :( You can try reaching down under the manifold and feel around the sensor to see how you can remove and replace it. I don't know of any tricks if that's what you're asking.

it CAN be done! ive done it! just takes some nimble hands and a shiton of patients. and some extensions and a swivel extension. if u have any small children present make them get their little hands in there maybe. but it can be done. if u dont have the bolt i believe its a M6 1.25 pitch and about 1 and 1/8-1/4 long.
