I am new to this forum and i don't know if i am posting in the right place (i hope so!)
So, my problem is:
I have a Honda HR-V from 2001 with a 1.6 liter VTEC engine D16W5. The engine was rebuilt (i chose the car especially for this; was supposed to be "easy"). Everything is in working condition without a problem. Works almost flawlessly. But i had a kncok sensor error (after the rebuild). I replaced the knock sensor and the error is still present - from that i concluded that the problem was not the sensor. I have googled some forums and it appears that the engine cannot advance ignition timing. I can adjust the timing manually, but i need to do it every so often
. What did i do wrong? Because i did soooo many things that i cannot even imagine where the problem is... I am an electrical engineer, not a mechanic, this was supposed to be my "initiation" into mechanics...
