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.

      I found what looks to be an unused O2 sensor found in a thrift store, there are no marking anywhere on the part. Can anyone tell just by looking at it, what car/truck it might fit? Thank you.

      Continental has added eight new part numbers to its line of OEM knock sensors.  
      The sensors are the same part that the vehicle manufacturer uses and deliver the exact fit, form and function as the original part, ensuring an easy installation and long service life, according to Continental.
      The eight new part numbers provide application coverage for some of the most popular domestic, European and Asian makes and models on the road today. The expanded line covers Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Infiniti, Jeep, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Mercury, Nissan and Ram models ranging from 2000 to 2023. The new sensors provide coverage for 28.8 million vehicles in operation (VIO) in the United States and 2.4 million vehicles in Canada.
      “Our newly expanded line was developed to meet the growing need for reliable knock sensors on some of the most common vehicles on the road today,” noted Brendan Bachant, Continental product manager for engine management and fuel. “The original sensors can be prone to failure due to mechanical damage, excessive vibration, high engine temperatures, and corrosion. Continental has made these OEM sensors available to the aftermarket so that professional technicians can easily and confidently service the most common vehicles in the shop, like the Ford F-150 and Explorer, the Jeep Wrangler and the Nissan Maxima and Altima. Technicians can be confident when choosing the Continental knock sensor that they will avoid comebacks.”
      Knock sensors are designed to detect engine ping caused by pre-ignition and relay the information to the electronic control unit to adjust engine timing and help keep the engine running smoothly. These sensors are an ideal repair for a rough-running engine with a timing and knock-sensor fault code and will help shops to restore the performance of their customers’ vehicles to OE specifications, according to Continental.
      Continental knock sensors are built in ISO-certified facilities to deliver the highest level of dependability, the company noted.

      Bartec TPMS announced the release of its next-generation Rite-Sensor, the RS-2000. 
      “First and foremost, to ensure a smooth transition for our customers, the second-generation Rite-Sensor was designed to be completely backward-compatible with the first-generation version,” Bartec TPMS Product Manager Matthew Hitchcock said. “The second generation will allow us to continue our progress towards 100% vehicle coverage.”
      “The RS-2000 was designed to work on vehicles with high-line TPMS – that is vehicles with wheel-arch initiators,” Bartec CEO Scot Holloway said. “This new design also means improved sensor performance, and future diagnostics, all aimed at making our customers more successful servicing TPMS vehicles.”
      Launched in September, the new Rite-Sensor is available now through authorized resellers.
      To activate the additional vehicle coverage, users of the following Bartec TPMS Tools – the Tech600pro, Tech550Pro, Tech450 Pro or TechRITEPro – need to download and install update 6.0. Users of the Tech500Pro, Tech400Pro and Tech300Pro need to get update 66.0.
