Knock sensors usually are found on turbo charged engines. Have a diagnostics run on your car to pinpoint the problem.

SOURCE: Black smoke together with rough idle, but only sometimes

is the "service engine soon" light on?? it should be on and flashing is the car is misfiring. that means spark plug or coil is not firing. if the light is on, scan it with a scanner that you can buy at walmart in automotive section. that will cost you about $60 to buy and you have it for future problems. dealer would charge you alot more to scan. or even some autoparts stores will scan it for you for free. scanner will tell you which cylinder is not firing. start there.

Honda accord 1997 my car is having trouble idling it was over heating it had a hole in the radatior and i got that fixed and now it is having trouble staying started its puttering all the way threw first...

Sadly, it sounds like the overheating caused the cylinder head to warp. If this is the case, the head needs to be pulled out and resurfaced. Many times, when the head warps, it will contaminate the cooling water.... look for traces of oil in the coolant. Other times, you will be able to see a white cloud, water vapor, coming out of the exhaust. One remote possibility is that when the radiator was fixed, a sensor was disconnected, and if this was the case, the check engine light should be on.
