    2001,XK8 Knock sensor

    Hi Everybody
    I sorted the lambda sensors out thanks to Jimbov8 ,I now have restricted proformance with code P0327 which is bank 1 knock sensor ,I have checked the reading against bank 2 and there is a difference Bank 1 reads 180 ohms and bank 2, 203 ohms.Can anybody please tell me what the reading should be ,before I change sensors.
    Thanks Brian

    Here's the full test procedure for a P0327 code. The only bit I'd be hesitant about is when it says switch ignition On and then reconnect battery. I certainly wouldn't do it that way on my XK8. Can't see how it would matter to connect battery first. Up to you! Good luck!

    P126 is the knock sensor connector. Pin 1 has a Brown wire, Pin 2 a White one.
