Answers :

The knock is because the EGR not opening or its passages in the intake manifold are plugged. And the Knock is causing the KNOCK SENSOR to ****** the timing to reduce detonation Test the egr by hooking up a vacuum pump to the egr and while idling pump vacuum the engine should stumble and nearly die until you release the vacuum. If it does not or the EGR will not hold vacuum first if it will not hold vacuum replace the EGR then test like I described a bit earlier, If the engine does not stumble at all you need to clean the EGR passages and sometimes this means removing the intake plenm and cleaning that way whic is actually the best and only way to completely remove all the carbon and while you are there replace the PFE SENSOR Or sometimes known as the BACKPRESSURE SENSOR If you need parts only BUY ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT FORD PARTS BECAUSE FORD HAS SO MANY UPDATES THAT ONLY FORD HAS THE MOST CURRENT PARTS !!!!!!!
