Make sure you are not over torquing it. if you screw it in to much, it will give false readings and if it is not screwed in enough, it will also give false readings.

There's a delicate balance to be known and, if this sensor is over torqued or, not torqued enough, it will malfunction.

I guess you do not know that OBD Codes have
nothing to do with replacing parts

The Codes are used along with the diagnostic
info & charts to check the system that set the codes

Only component testing will find a problem

You used the name of a codes to replace a part
with a similar name

I would guess you did no testing & have no idea why the
fault codes were set, so you found no problem, thus you
fixed nothing & the MIL Lamp is still on

You Cleared ALL DATA needed to help diagnose the issues

You lost your codes & freeze frame data at the time the codes
were set & your lost your emission monitor data

Now you get your codes & write them down
Google the codes & study the possible cause
& solutions

TYPE: OBD & your codes

Hello, I need some help. I have a 1996 Honda Civic ex (automatic) D16y8 VTEC engine. Today I had a mechanic replace distributor with a new one (not rebuilt) from an auto parts store. The mechanic did not...


Yes, the ignition timing could be off enough to cause the symptoms and the check engine light.
I would take it back to the shop and tell them to set base timing, clear the code, and refund you the cost of the knock sensor and labor.

I replaced the knock sensor, what else could be causing acceleration problems on hills?


The knock sensor code does not always mean the sensor is faulty.
The sensor picks up noise and vibration in the engine such as a spark knock would generate, and the computer slows down the spark timing to fix it. If the noise or vibration continues, the code is set.
Could be a noisy valve, or a problem with the crankshaft or other component.

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:

Check engine light comes on a engine pings will do this for a while and it turns off and no engine ping than will do ti again


Pinging generally is caused by failure of the knock sensor. Have a code check done and likely it will show that code. If so, replace the sensor. You can have code tests done free at most larger parts stores.

Check engine and engine noise on 1995 Nissan altima


This car does not have a timing chain, it has a belt. The reason your knock sensor and O2 sensor is coming on is likely because your timing belt has stretched which caused it to jump time. Since the engine is not properly timed the fuel mixture is off and the engine is pinging/knocking and that is why the knock sensor is coming up. The sensors are doing their job and keeping the engine from blowing. You should put a timing belt on the car ASAP. I recommend changing the tensionors while you are at it.

Nissan xterra knock sensor


It's the valley of the engine underneath the intake manifold. It's about an $800 job because the top of the engine has to come off. However, unless you have a supercharged xterra it shouldn't effect performance. Also, the knock sensor will not trip the check engine light, as it does not indicate a primary problem, so if your light is on you should have another code that should be fixed first.
