Reading through the Subaru forum, people keep saying "If you get a bad knock sensor code, replace your knock sensor!"

They mentioned finding them cheap on eBay. I found one for seven dollars, with free shipping! There is one on Amazon for $12.50, also with free shipping.

I looked at several Subaru parts dealers and I would have ordered from one, had I not wanted to do this tomorrow (today (in a few hours)).

Well, it was "today" when I started looking.

I looked at local auto parts places until I decided on O'Reilly. They had the knock sensor, spark plugs, and wires, and I also ordered a spark plug socket and a torque wrench. I read that knock sensors were easily damaged by incorrect torquing.

I also read that they are sensitive to orientation. That sounds fun.

Well, I am going to try to get some sleep. It seems like all that I am doing is sleeping and trying to figure out how to take care of my car.

My finals are on Friday.
