i got a 96 and i did the diagnostic codes threw the ac controls and the -01 shows a 43,does that code mean a bad knock sensor? i just want to double check before i start replacing parts and hope this is why my motor has a slight shake to it

Two knock sensor threads in one day, they must be going up in price. The knock sensor will retard or advance the timing(not sure which one) if it hears a noise. It thinks you have pre-detonation due to a rich fuel mixture or carbon buildup in the cylinders. Thats what I interpreted from the manual.
