the knock sensor is located on a v 6 engine in the valley at no 5 piston position
there is another sensor directly opposite on bank 1 at no 2 piston position
for general information if your engine is not v 6 on a 4 cyl they are at no 1 and between 3 and 4 cylinders on the inlet manifold side and on a v 8 engine they are between 2-4 and 6-8 exhaust side and between 1-3 and 5-7 on the exhaust side
There are two knock sensors located on top of the Engine, approximately in the middle of the 4 cylinders at each bank. To get access to the sensors the black plastic engine cover with the "Jaguar V8" imprinted on has to be removed.
There are two types of knock sensors. The "old" ones that are of a "screw-in barrel type" and the newer ones that are just bolted on.
I describe the replacement of the bolt-on type knock sensor on Bank 2 in the following documentation on a 1999 XJ8 AJ27 engine.
Be careful! Knock sensors are piezo electric devices that are very sensitive! If dropped, over-torqued or struck they will probably be destroyed. As knock sensors are sensitive to a sudden temperature change they are also easily fractured by steam blasting a hot engine. So handle the knock sensors with great care and let the engine always cool before fitting a new sensor!
Changing knock sensors on 2001 GMC 1500hd 1. Remove the intake manifold. 2. There are 2 sensors located on a plate under the intake manifold. These are the knock sensors. 3. Remove the wiring harness assembly from the knock sensor. 4. Install the new rear bank knock sensor and tighten to 15 lb ft.
