Meloe77, there's a high possibility you have a mechanical failure inside the engie causing the knocking sound. (Check the oil?)
The reason for shutting off is because the knock sensor can hear it, and the powertrain control module (PCM, herefore) is trying to detune the engine to eliminate the sound, (as if it were caused by bad gasoline.) The fact that there is a mechanical knocking sound, means that the sound cannot be eliminated by detuning of fuel or spark mapping, therefore it starves for fuel and/or spark causing the engine to stop running.
My recommendation: Have the vehicle TOWED to a reputable mechanic and ask him if its possible that I'm right.

Cutting off


Hard to diagnose long distance. I would look at the throttle body and the idle air control for dirt-sludge. The control valve may be stopped up or sticking.

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.
