Its most likely the vent control valve, which is bolted to the canister behind the rear wheel on drivers side. However, the control valve is held on to the canister with 2 bolts, which will most likely brake or at least on of them. In that case you will need the canister also. You can test the control valve by un-plugin it ads supplying 12 V to it. It should click. Is click is heard, that is a good sound. If no clicking is heard, than the valve is stuck and will need to be replaced. Don't forget about the screws that hold it in. You may need the canister if they brake. Let me know what you find.

The two codes seem to be related. The P0325 description is knock sensor circuit malfunction and the P1320 is ignition signal - circuit malfunction.
I'll summarize and then give links on more detailed articles I found. Basically the P0325 refers to the knock sensor and associated wiring. The P1320 refers to the ignition coil and wiring. Check the sensor, coil, and associated wiring.
I found some great articles:

P1320 Ignition Signal
Signal wire from distributor
P0325 Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 or Single Sensor)
O2 senor ( The one before the cat converter )
P0300 Random/Multiple Cylinder Misfire Detected
The misfire detection monitor, a software strategy built into the computer, is designed to detect an engine misfire. The computer can also normally identify the specific cylinder in which the misfire has occurred. A misfire is nothing more than a lack of combustion, which can be caused by poor fuel quality or metering, low compression, lack of spark or unmetered air entering the engine. There are other possible, less obvious causes as well, such as uncommanded Exhaust Gas Recirculatin (EGR), flow. When the misfire monitor detects a misfire, it will trigger the check engine light with the specific cylinder number as the last digit in the P030X code. For instance cylinder 1 misfire is P0301, cylinder 2 is P0302 etc. In this case we have either multiple cylinders misfiring, or the computer simply can't determine the specific cylinder, and as such we are left with the P0300 in computer memory.
Fuel injectors, related wiring, sensors and computer issues
Running out of gas, or poor fuel quality
Evaporative emissions system (EVAP) concerns: fuel vapors leaking into engine
Incorrect fuel pressure
EGR system concerns: leaking EGR valve or restricted ports
Base engine concerns: low compression, valve train problems and timing issues
Ignition system concerns including, but not limited to:
Faulty spark plugs
Faulty coil or related wiring
Ignition module or related wiring issues
Ignition related sensor faults or wiring issues

P0325 is for the knock sensor.
P1105 is for the manifold absolute pressure sensor (MAP).
In either case diagnostic tests need to be performed to rule out faulty sensors or if something else is causing the sensors to give the computer inaccurate information.

P1320 is the Ignition Signal Primary. There is a technical bulletin for this code for this vehicle. To remedy this issue, you will need to replace all 6 ignition coils. I suggest that you purchase them from a Nissan dealer to make sure you get the right ones.
