I don't know specifically but mostly the knock sensor isn't bolted anywhere but is screwed into the cylinder block midway along the cool side (opposite to exhaust) just below the head gasket.

The knock sensor is a type of microphone and if it is to detect the early sounds of detonation it must be in very intimate contact with the cylinder block.

Someone posted about a similar problem some time ago. I don't remember the details but there was a knock sensor and connecting wires but no threaded boss for it to screw into. At the time I could only suggest the vehicle had an earlier engine fitted and if it wasn't possible to fabricate a very substantial bracket to firmly attach to the cylinder block into which the sensor could be screwed then the sensor could perhaps be bonded to the block using one of the many epoxy repair pastes to build up a substantial boss around the sensor.

Obviously the sensor cannot function but if it is not connected the engine management will record it as a fault.

if the wires are not damaged , washing them in vinegar to remove the exhaust build up on the sensor tip sometimes helps
code p 0134 refers to heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) 1 bank 1 --no activity detected ===causes--- wiring open circuit ---heating inoperative ---HO2S
it also refers to oxygen sensor (O2S)--no activity detected ====causes --wiring ---O2S
code p 0135 refers to HO2S 1 bank 1--heater control -circuit malfunction===causes ---fuse ,wiring ---HO2S---ECM
code p 0342 refers to camshaft position (CMP) sensor A , bank 1---low input ===causes ---wiring short to ground -- CMP sensor ---ECM

oxygen sensors have delicate wiring in the harness so they are easily damaged when the correct sensor tool is not used in the installation or removal process or the wires are pulled when disconnection the connection plugs

Head gasket not torqued down correctly is where I would start. A simple pressure check will show this up.

1998 Isuzu Amigo | Answered on Jun 01, 2017

There should be no pressure on the T/O bearing hence why it died in the first place.
I little 'Never Seize' goes a LONG way also.

1998 Isuzu Amigo | Answered on Jan 29, 2016

The head gasket could be blown. Is there a lot of water? Is there oil in your radiator?
There is a chance, it could be condensation. If it is just a small amount of milky looking oil on the oil cap.

1998 Isuzu Amigo | Answered on Apr 09, 2015

Hi there,.
It sounds like either the master cylinder or the slave cylinder rubbers have started to rot due to either bad fluid or condensation in the master cylinder causing the cylinder to rust in side the bore and the cup washer is braking up inside and causing air to enter.
So undo the pipe to the slave cylinder and screw in a bolt [not to tight] and see if you have pressure if yes, then its the slave cylinder rubber is at fault and needs to be replaces .
If not then its the master cylinder.
