    So last week my check engine light came on. When I looked up the code, I got P0328 the knock sensor. Has anyone got this code before, is it a big job. I just got the intake manifold replace, so I'm hoping for a cheap fix.

    Bought the Cruze 2 years ago and have been doing many repairs myself, from loss of power, to a coolant water outlet leak and broken HVAC defrost mode, of which a lot this forum helped me accomplish. Therefore I would like to be a member and share my experiences in return.
