Knock sensor for 2007 Saturn outlook. I can't pass emissions test!


Check engine light on ? What code ? There are many different (DTC'S) - diagnostic trouble codes that can set for knock sensors ! There all don't mean that you replace the sensor .
DTC P0324: Knock Sensor (KS) Module Performance
DTC P0325: Knock Sensor (KS) Circuit Bank 1
DTC P0326: Knock Sensor (KS) Performance
DTC P0327: Knock Sensor (KS) Circuit Low Bank 1
DTC P0328: Knock Sensor (KS) Circuit High Bank 1
DTC P0330: Knock Sensor (KS) Circuit Bank 2
DTC P0332: Knock Sensor (KS) Circuit Low Bank 2
DTC P0333: Knock Sensor (KS) Circuit High Bank 2

The knock sensor (KS) system enables the control module to control the ignition timing for the best possible performance while protecting the engine from potentially damaging levels of detonation. The sensors are located below each cylinder head on the engine block. The KS produces an AC voltage signal that varies depending on the vibration level during engine operation. The control module adjusts the spark timing based on the amplitude and the frequency of the KS signal. The control module receives the KS signal through 2 isolated signal circuits. The control module learns a minimum KS noise level at idle and uses calibrated values for the rest of the RPM range. The control module should monitor a normal KS signal within the noise channel.
Knock Sensor Replacement - Bank 1
Remove the exhaust manifold lower heat shield. Refer to Exhaust Manifold Lower Heat Shield Replacement.
Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connector (1) from the bank 1 knock sensor (2).
Loosen the knock sensor bolt and remove the knock sensor.
Knock Sensor Replacement - Bank 2
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnection and Connection .
Remove the engine oil filter. Refer to Engine Oil and Oil Filter Replacement .
Lower the vehicle.
Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connector (2) from the bank 2 knock sensor (3).
Loosen the knock sensor bolt and remove the knock sensor.

Where is my knock sensor bank 2 located at on my jaguar x-type? (2002, 2.5 cylinder v6)


There are two knock sensors located on top of the Engine, approximately in the middle of the 4 cylinders at each bank.
To get access to the sensors the black plastic engine cover with the "Jaguar V8" imprinted on has to be removed.

There are two types of knock sensors.
The "old" ones that are of a "screw-in barrel type" and the newer ones that are just bolted on.

I describe the replacement of the bolt-on type knock sensor on Bank 2 in the following documentation on a 1999 XJ8 AJ27 engine.

Be careful!
Knock sensors are piezo electric devices that are very sensitive! If dropped, over-torqued or struck they will probably be destroyed.
As knock sensors are sensitive to a sudden temperature change they are also easily fractured by steam blasting a hot engine.
So handle the knock sensors with great care and let the engine always cool before fitting a new sensor!

P0 333 knock sensor where is located? banck 2,please send a picture


bank one is the left side if your standing in front of the car and facing the hood...and bank one is always where the 1st cylinder is located....so bank two is located on right...if your standing in front of the car..if its superchraged the knock sensor is located on the plenum of the black and has to be tightened 24 nm of torque or 32lbs ft. you will have to remove the supercharger and the throttle body and egr vavle etc...to get to it.And if you have a natural aspirated engine the its also one the plenum of the block about half way don the engine...if you need a pic of the location let me know...

P0332 - Knock Sensor 2 Circuit Low Input (Bank 2)

The knock sensor is attached to the cylinder block. It senses engine knocking using a piezoelectric element. A knocking vibration from the cylinder block is sensed as vibrational pressure. This pressure is converted into a voltage signal and sent to the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) or Engine Control Module (ECM).

Causes for P0332 DTC:
- Knock sensor circuit short to GND.
- Knock sensor circuit short to PWR.
- Knock sensor circuit open.
- Damaged knock sensor.
- PCM or ECM failure.

Solutions:
- Repair or resecure the harness or connector.
- Replace the knock sensor.

Your best bet is to just replace the knock sensor for sensor 2 bank 2. Call Auto Zone with part number SU1282 this is the OEM replacement.

The knock sensor looks like this:

Service soon light stays on.. had it checked at auto zone and came up with po327 knock sensor condition. Is this gona be an expensive car repair?


no, 30 minutes labor--you can do it yourself. part is $30. You have 2 of them. 327 is for bank 1, which is the back bank by the firewall. see picture below (the picture is bank 2, but location is same on other side).

To replace the knock sensor:
  • Disconnect the knock sensor wiring connector.
  • Then, unscrew the sensor.
  • Remove the knock sensor.
  • Reverse the procedures to install the part.

      A defective knock sensor may cause engine detonation or reduced spark advance and fuel economy. When a knock sensor is removed and replaced, the sensor must be tightened to its specified torque. If the knock sensor is installed tighter than it should be, it may become too sensitive and provide an excessively high voltage signal, resulting in more spark ****** than required. When the knock sensor is installed looser than it should be, the knock sensor signal will be lower than normal, resulting in engine detonation.

    If all connections are good "dry, tight, no corrosion" then yes. It should be a defective sensor. These sensors are piezo sensors and create a voltage when sensing a knock. A bank refers to a side on a V style engine, 2 refers to the rear sensor on your bank 2. Bank 1 should be the side with cylinder #1 which should be the cylinder closest to you on one of the sides. So your looking for the rear sensor on the opposite side.

    P0332 - Knock Sensor 2 Circuit Low Input (Bank 2)

    This sensor signals the engine-control computer when detonation is detected, momentarily retarding ignition timing until detonation ceases.

    Most computer-controlled systems use knock sensors to ****** timing when the engine is experiencing pinging or knocking.


    Obviously, a faulty knock sensor produces problems that appear to be ignition-system-related. If the knock sensor system does not provide an engine detonation signal to the PCM (powertrain control module), the engine detonates, especially on acceleration.
    • The first step in diagnosing the knock sensor and knock sensor module is to check all the wires and connections in the system for loose connections, corroded terminals, and damage.
    • With the ignition switch on, be sure that 12 volts are being supplied through the fuse to the knock sensor module.
    • A quick check of a knock sensor is to watch the ignition's timing while the engine is running and the engine block is tapped with a hammer.
      • The noise should cause a change in timing.
    • The knock sensor can also be checked by tapping near the sensor and watching for an AC pulse on a DMM or lab scope.

    Knock sensor location


    It's under the intake manifold. To access it you have to remove the manifold and injection rail.
