Pretty Difficult you have to remove the complete intake and injector rail. You will need both side intake gaskets and the plenum gasket.

Need to know how to install knock sensors and where they are need diagram. 2005 expedition 5.4 engine


Hello adamjerkins,

It is somewhat complicated to change the knock sensors. There are two of them and they are located under the intake manifold. The intake manifold must be removed. I would recommend tha you replace both while you have the engine apart.

What leads you to believe the knock sensors are bad, I've seen few bad knock sensors? The knock sensor issues more times than not have been caused by other problems.

After you remove the intake manifold disconnect the knock sensor connectors. Remove the bolts and the two knock sensors then replace with new knock sensors tighten the bolts to 15 foot pounds. Reinstall manifold. The total job for an experienced mechanic with tools is about 5 hours. Not a good job for a beginner.
