2005 Dodge Durango knock sensor problems

My check engine light came on and it was determined that the knock sensor was the cause. We apparently need to replace the part but do not know where its located or how to change it. Any help would be great.

I really doubt the knock sensor is the problem, check the connector 1st for water intrusion or oil, if u do replace it then u must torque it to the proper spec into the cooling system jacket of the block or it will set another code.

2005 dodge durango driving down the road,


Are you actually hearing the engine speed change as well when this happens, or just seeing the tach needle make crazy readings??

If only the tach is being funky, then I would say a speed sensor on the tranny is on its way out. There is also a speed sensor on the rear axle of some Durangos that can cause this issue.

Loud knocking coming from the bottom end and now loss of power sludge build up i have changed oil normal every 2500-3000 miles with synthetic and slick fifty.


the engine probably has a bad bearing in it.oil sludge can be caused by short trip driving,overheating,pluged crank case vent or pcv system not working.the power loss due to the computer retarding ignition timeing due to the knock sensor producing a signal from the engine knock.regardless an ongine ocerhaul or replacement is neede.
but first make sure that the bell housing bolts,torque converter bolts are all tight.
make sure the knock isnt from the catalytic converter
check for dents in the oil pan
check engine accessorys for noise such as water pump.power steering pump,alternator,a/c compressor.and all attachment bolts

Check gages light came on driving a 2002 dodge durango now engines knocking


with engine running check the oil pressure gauge. if it is not reading you will have to check the pressure with an external gauge. the sensor on a v8 is locaterd rear of the engine next to the distributor. No oil pressure will starve the engine of lubrication and cause damage resulting in the knocking .

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango. At 27,000 miles, it started stalling in traffic and the dealer replaced several sensors. The cam sensor was the last one to be replaced. Now at 72,000 miles, it has began to...


if there is a knocking sound the computer will start retarding the timing to get rid of engine knock thru the knock sensor. Make sure you are using the correct grade of fuel. it will be listed in your owners manual. the improper grade of fuel can cause detonation in your engine. giving a knocking sound. if the change in fuel doesn't help you may be looking at mechanical repairs. hope this helps. mike

Knock sensor dont work for 2005 dodge durango


this problem is very seldom the knock sensor, it can be the harness connector at the sensor or the engine has excessive knock which will set a code, u did not mention the particular code so hard to say, the location of the knock sensor is the lower section of the engine block, it is screwed into what would normally be a block drain plug, if u replace it u need to torque it to whatever the factory spec is or it can cause it throw another code..
