The knock sensor on many cars is fitted to the engine block. It is often about the width of a ping pong ball and may have two wires leading from it. They are generally easy to replace, depending on access. It should be something you can do yourself.

before you start taking stuff apart, make sure that the knock sensor is bad and not the wires. test for ground and continuity on the signal wire from the sensor connector to the pin on the pcm connector. google "testing knock sensor" for more info

2004 Toyota Camry - Check engine light has been coming on intermittently for a year. When reading the codes it states Knock Sensor and O2 Sensor Bank 1. The car is very sluggish when the light comes on....


I would tend to say the knock sensor is a result of the 02 sensor, because if it is not reading correctly it could be reporting the engine is running to rich, there for leaning out the air fuel mixture resulting in knocking which is then picked up by the knock sensor. I would start by replacing the O2 sensor in bank 1.
