Knock Sensor Differences PAT vs. Tridon.


Recommended Posts

Hey there!
My name is Nelson and I'm looking for a new Knock Sensor for my Mazda MX-5 2004 NB Model.
There are two Knock Sensors available, one is from PremierAutoTrades and one is from Tridon.
The Tridon model is a TKS110 and the PAT model is KNS-078.
I've been looking everywhere online for differences and found nothing! 
The reason I need to know so badly is because the Tridon is $509 and the PAT is $148.
What I'm looking to find out is if there is a better one or if they are pretty much the same.
Aany comments on lifetime or quality / response would be helpful!
 

Thank you, very much.

All yours mate.

      Continental now offers an ultrasonic backup-sensor kit that can be retrofitted to or incorporated as OEM for virtually any vehicle including commercial vehicles, RVs and off-highway, agricultural and material-handling equipment.
      Out of the box, the ultrasonic backup-sensor kit provides an audible alarm to the operator when the vehicle comes within 10 feet of an object and beeps faster as the driver gets closer to the obstacle. The kit also can customized for specific distance intervals to meet OEM specifications.
      The innovative backup system delivers a voice announcement of object distance at specific intervals and easily integrates with on-board camera/monitor systems, according to Continental. When paired with a backup camera system, a monitor will display an overlay, revealing the active sensor(s) and the object distance from that sensor.
      “Backup sensors are an essential component of operator and workplace safety in modern vehicles,” notes Jared Hall, Continental product manager. “The Continental ultrasonic back-up-sensor kit can be fitted to a wide variety of vehicles including commercial trucks, buses, RVs, fire trucks, garbage trucks and agricultural vehicles, as well as construction, mining and material handling equipment.”
      The Continental ultrasonic backup-sensor kit is easy to set up and simple to configure as a retrofit or original equipment installation, according to the company. The kit includes four sensors, a central control unit and a speaker. Cameras, and monitors are available from Continental as options.

      Continental has launched a redesigned website for its REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS-sensor program.
      The new website at
      link hidden, please login to view, features a wide range of TPMS training and educational resources for professional technicians and shops. It also introduces and showcases the next generation of REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors, which can replace more than 290 different OE sensors and provide coverage for more than 150 million VIO with only four sensors. A key feature of the new REDI-Sensor site is the “Training Central” section, which houses a portfolio of training resources aimed at educating professional technicians on the latest TPMS knowledge and service techniques. The section includes signups for live webinars hosted by Continental’s own TIA-certified instructors and allows visitors to access previously held webinars on-demand.
      Upcoming Webinars
      Continental is hosting two upcoming live webinars on April 20 and April 27, which will focus on the new generation of REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors. The training webinars are open to all service pros and Training Central offers easy way to sign and participate at https://www.redi-sensor.com/trainingcentral/.
      In addition to webinars, the section features a video series on TPMS Tech Tips, service tips for professionals, a TPMS FAQ section and information on the complete REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS line.
      The REDI-Sensor website provides an exceptional application lookup that makes it easier for technicians to quickly identify the right product for their TPMS needs. It uses a year/make/model search function to help determine the correct TPMS-sensor and service parts needed, while also providing the latest sensor installation and relearn instructions, service tips and how-to videos. A “Where to Buy” feature has been added to help shops find the best location to purchase the REDI-Sensor TPMS sensor and service parts they need.
      The site also features a section for drivers that includes some everyday FAQs on TPMS, information on the importance of TPMS for driving safety and a blog with articles on TPMS, tire service and safety tips. The site was built with a responsive-first design template, allowing it to be easily accessed and navigated on mobile devices as well as laptop and desktop computers.

      link hidden, please login to viewAccording to the annual CarMD® Vehicle Health Index one of the most common check engine light repairs is replacing the oxygen sensor. This relatively minor repair can be costly if neglected, leading to as much as 40 percent lower fuel efficiency, causing further damage to your vehicle’s exhaust system and adversely impacting the environment. “Vehicles with faulty oxygen sensors typically seem to drive and handle well, but the malfunction can dramatically decrease fuel efficiency and lead to costlier repairs if ignored,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “A faulty oxygen sensor means your vehicle is emitting more pollutants and if the check engine light is illuminated, it may not pass vehicle emissions testing in those states requiring it for vehicle registration.”
      A vehicle’s oxygen sensors are mounted in the exhaust system; they monitor the catalytic convertor’s operation and the level of oxygen in exhaust gases to maintain efficient engine operation. The best way to prevent an oxygen sensor failure is to follow a regular service schedule, including routine oil changes.
      Unlike the past nine years of the annual CarMD
      link hidden, please login to view, costly catalytic converter replacement edged out O2 sensor replacement as the most common check engine light repair. Catalytic converters do not typically fail unless maintenance and other repairs are ignored or the vehicle is older. Average vehicle age has increased from 10.6 years to 11.7 years over the past decade, contributing to this outcome. “It is important that car owners check the reason for an illuminated check engine light without delay and make necessary maintenance to avoid more costly repairs, like catalytic converter replacement, down the road,” said White. “If you find your vehicle needs service, call your trusted local repair shop as automotive repair is considered an essential service.”
