SOURCE: Location of knock sensor on

A knock sensor is threaded into the engine block and is supposed to sense when the engine starts to ping or spark knock and reduces the ignition timing accordingly.The knock sensor is located on the side of the engine.

  • Turn the ignition OFF.
  • Raise the vehicle.
  • Disconnect the knock sensor harness connector.
  • Remove the knock sensor attachment bolt and the knock sensor.

  • Important: The larger metal contact area of the knock sensor MUST be toward the engine block. DTC P0327 may result if the sensor is installed backwards.

  • Install the knock sensor and attachment bolt with the larger metal contact area toward the engine block.

  • Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    How do you replace a Nissan 350Z knock sensor?

    The knock sensors (one for each cylinder head on the V6) are located on the inside of the cylinder heads, in order to replace them the upper intake manifold must be removed. It is always recommended on this engine family that not only replace the 2 knock sensors but that you also replace the short sub wiring harness to the knock sensors from the main engine harness as it is many times the a common cause of the knock sensor code(s) in the 1st place.

    OK, bank2 is the side where the #2 piston is on. Usually its the pasanger side. To be sure open the hood and see which cylinder head is more forward than the other. the cylinder head set back is the bank 2 side. The knock sensor is located on the bank side of the block. You dont need a special tool. only a wrench. Make sure you clear all codes after installation of sensor.
