Currently have my 2007 FJ overseas in Bahrain, and over the last 48-72 hours, some local vermin have made themselves at home in my engine and chewed through some wires. Started the car this morning, and immediately saw the CEL, ABS, VSC, and TC lights illuminated. Read the codes, and it's the P0333 Engine Knock Sensor (Bank 2) failure code, and when I lifted the bonnet, sure enough, there are rodent footprints everywhere.
I'm looking for an estimate (time-wise) to pull the intake & exhaust manifolds, drain the coolant & fuel, and basically get all the metal out of the way to assess the true damage. Labor is cheap(ish - $5-10/hr) here, and I may or may not be able to get the parts locally (Amazon is an option via FPO).
Assuming that the knock sensors are still good (they should be), how much actual wrench time should it take to pull the intake & exhaust manifolds and check & replace damaged wiring? I've seen 20-plus hours in previous threads, but if I don't actually have to replace sensors, is it less?
Thanks in advance. Just trying to get an idea on how tightly I should clench my cheeks before bringing it in. And, no, I'm not driving it at all.
