If they came on at the same time and no code shows it's a knock sensor. Auto ZONE OR ANY BIG GUY WILL CHECK CODES FOR YOU IF YOU DON'T HAVE CODE READER. Less than premium gas and a heavy foot or bad sensor is the cause. Been there, done that.

Having the same issue as Jane. I don't use premium gas, I bet that's the problem. Is it necessary to get the car checked or is it enough to just switch to premium gas?
