Where is the knock sensor v6 2wd location


Most 'knock sensors' are located on the engine block. If you have your 'owners manual' it should show where the 'knock sensor' is located.

I have a 95 oldsmobile 98 regency elite I cant find where the knock sensor goes I have a haynes manual but where it shows it wont go


Well, for starters, your problem got posted under 1985 Oldsmobile 98 - then you said it was a 95 Oldsmobile 98 Regency Elite (HUGE difference between 85 and 95)...then it would be REALLY nice to know which engine we are talking about.

I'll just go with what you said last: 1995 Oldsmobile Regency Elite (Two engine possibilities)

If you have the 3.8L Supercharged engine (VIN CODE "1") it is on the left side of the engine near the oil filter.

If you have the non-supercharged 3.8L (VIN CODE "K") there are TWO of them. One is near the oil filter and the other one is in about the same location on the other side of the engine block.

Please also note that MOST fault codes for knock sensors are not caused by the knock sensors themselves. (they do fail, but it is very rare.) Usually there is either a wiring problem to the knock sensor, or the engine has internal problems causing a "knocking" or "ticking" noise which causes the engine computer to "think" that there is a problem with pre-detonation causing an "ignition ping". The code sets when the computer has retarded the ignition timing as far as it can and the "knock" or "ping" does not go away....usually it doesn't go away because it is not caused by ignition timing. The knock sensor is just doing its job and reporting the knock. It does not know the difference between a knock caused by ignition and a knock caused by internal engine problems.

Location of knock sensor on a 1998 Saturn 4 cylinder


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.

    Location of knock sensor?


    Look under exhaust manifold on drivers side, closer to rear of engine, mounted on engine block.

    Keep in mind that the knock sensor is a tuned piezoelectric crystal transducer that is located in the cylinder head. The knock sensor provides the MCU with an electrical signal that is created by vibrations that correspond to its center frequency (5550 Hz). Vibrations from engine knock (detonation) cause the crystal inside the sensor to vibrate and produce an electrical signal that is used by the MCU to selectively ****** the ignition timing of any single cylinder or combination of cylinders to eliminate the knock condition.

    This and other details can find in the Grand Cherokee Service Manual.

    Good luck (remember rated this).

    Location of knock senor on 97 maxima se


    Your knock sensor is located Under the hood, center, front engine area, below intake manifold, mounted on block.


    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.

    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.

    Location of knock sensor on 1994 toyota 22vre engine


    The Knock sensor on a 22re is located under the intake manifold on the engine block. to the upper left of the oil filter. With is the passenger side of the engine. I believe it is yellow in color. Not do be confused with the oil pressure sensor which is close by. The knock sensor has a larger electrical connector. Good luck it can be hard to get to.
