    Just wondering if there were actual Toyota technicians on the site.

    I've been having a problem with a second gen 4runner and I've been to all over the web looking for a solution including Yotatech and ttora.

    I have a 1995 4runner with a CEL code 52. Knock sensor circuitry. I replaced the knock sensor and the wire and still get the cel light that goes on and off whenever it feels like it. Should I rewire it directly to the ECU? I've traced the wire and seems to be all good. It's driving me nutz! :confused:

    Since this is my home forum, I'd figure i'd give it a try here. Any help/suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

    Toyota's 3VZE is a pain. I'm gonna probably take it apart again this weekend and see where that gets me.

    Engine cold = no cell
    Engine warm plus acceleration = cell
    Engine restarted when warm = no cell
    Then I hit the gas pedal and back to status #2.
