Knock sensor (s) heat shield

'02, 8.1 ltr, Workhorse W-22 chassis.

Is there a "heat shield" on the passenger side knock sensor, similar to the drivers side? It would be a "semi-circle" metal shield, bolted in place.

I'm not referring to the "starter" heat shield------

I've got a knock sensor issue again, after many years of trouble free driving and that "engine check light" came on once again.

I can clear it with my Scan Gauge II, and I've just replaced both sensors, and lead wire harnesses, with AC Delco units.

I previously had built a heat resistant "cocoon" around the right side (pax side), and that solved that issue years ago.

I've increased octane fuel levels and no that was of no help at all.

No pinging, knocking or lose of power---

I've just changed all the spark plugs too-

Just curious if the right side has a bolt on shield. Chevrolet parts was of no help. To them, it looks like only one shield on the drivers side (which is not available anymore).

If there was one, it might have been removed years ago when a new started was installed, to ease R/R efforts, and not re-installed.

Max,

No heat shield on the passenger side other than the starter heat shield. Verify sensor is at correct torque value, 15 lb ft.
