Knock Detector for Torque Pro

Knock Detector for Torque Pro


Check your gas engine for detonations ! Ensure that your everyday car or tuned machine is working fine and gas is good. You should have Torque Pro installed and OBD2 device connected. Knock Detector will:
- report detonations
- show throttle position
- monitor engine coolant and intake air temperatures
Knock Detector is Torque Pro plugin - install Torque Pro first and start Knock Detector from Torque's main menu and make sure OBD2 adapter is connected. While driving at low rpm on 3rd gear just press throttle to max position and wait a safe period of time. Test will start automatically and finish as you depress pedal. Notification sounds will be played. Test will cover the passed rev range. If testing on automatic gear box ensure that gears are not switched during the test.
Warning - please ensure safe driving conditions !!!

In order to work on all car models Knock Detector uses heuristic algorithm to find detonations. It is based on analysis of timing advance, throttle, revs and speed. On some ECUs it may report knocks but the reason could be timing retard because of specific factory tune.

Knock Detector will not report minor car specific knock events so it can also miss some detonations. However it will report ECU learned detonations. Such knock events will likely disappear at some moment. Detonations can be real or fake, they can appear and disappear, so there is no reason to worry if such are reported. Detonation may be caused just by depressing the throttle at high revs. Some stock ECUs pull timing 0.5 - 1.00 even on WOT so fake knock will be detected.

Engine coolant and intake air temperaturesare also monitored as major knock factors. Avoid spirited driving or testing when both values are not green - too cold or too hot temperatures can cause detonations.

Русские друзья, вы должны установить Torque Pro с OBD2(ELM327) устройство. Спасибо !

Amis français, vous devez installer Torque Pro avec OBD2(ELM327) engin aussi.

Nothing happens? First off... Instructions on how to use it would be nice. I believe you are to floor it in 3rd gear. Is that supposed to be from a stop... Don't know. I see the throttle indicator move, and temps move around, but I keep having to back off because of speed and engine rpm. Don't think it is necessary to go 100mph in third to test it. Am I not doing something right? Or does it do nothing if there is no knock? Using it on a 2013 f150 ecoboost.

On my X's ara Picasso I have it in 3rd gear then when I put my foot down revs go all the way up but the test don't start .also full throttle is only 65%

Not Too Sure It Works I downloaded this app and used it with torque pro on my 2005 Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor and tested it twice. Both times the app stated no detonations

Does it really work? I tried it first time. Already running 130kph and can't even reach pass 70%, no result. Tried stationary rev my engine so hard just to reach 30%. I need answer or i will just conclude that this app is extremely harmful to your engine!!!
