I have no gage reading and have been getting low coolant/overheat warnings
periodically.  I don't have low coolant, so it must be the overheat warning
and that plus the gage reading come from the same sensor.  Plus, I'm having
some wierd A/C cycling too...again, the same sensor might be causing it.

Read the fault code to find that the knock sensor is either bad or a bad
connection.  Is it common for these to fail?  If they do, what impact will
they have on performance?
