[20v] '91 CQ erratic power loss

Hi Christopher,
Before you change the knock sensor do clean the connectors!The knock sensor is a high impedance sensor, a crystal vibration sensor, there is no "working current" to keep the contacts clean.
On my '91 Golf the MAF sensor needs the connector cleaned about every 1  1/2 to 2 year.
Good luck, Peter
