    I have an autozone one and it works fine. Mine has about 3k on it and still working good. Look at it and make sure the goo isn't coming out or anything.

    Not necessairly, autozone offers duralast and other part companies. So yes it will be the same it doesnt have the standard of oem mitsubishi. They are cheaper versions most of the time which is why i deal with orielies and napa only now

    I bought a duralast knock sensor, the one that is $40. It looked exactly the same, and even had a mitsubishi sticker on it.
    I was also having knock problems, and thought it may have been PK and I even bought a OEM mitsu knock sensor from extremepsi. Guess what, it was exactly the same as the autozone one, AND it picked up knock exactly the same as the autozone one.

    You can claim it may be "inferior" but I believe they are the same product.

    It was real knock caused by carbon deposits in the combustion chamber.

    Got mine a autozone no problems owned several of them not spending oem money wheni dont have to

    99 percent of things i dont get for my car are non oem. I have to say many years later those parts still do there job.
