The Knock Sensor is Located under the Intake Manifold.. It can be seen vias a flash light from the Driverside Looking down into the open area below the intake manifold approx 8in. Inside. If you are going to Remove/Replace the Knock Sensor You will have to Remove the Intake Manifold. Whick is not as hard as it may look. You will also have to replace the Gasket on the intake it self.

Where the knock sensor at on a alero olsnobile 1999 2.4 twin cam


From my Mozilla Firefox browser, I typed in, "http://www.yahoo.com." When Yahoo pulls up, just type in, "photo/drawing of 1999 Oldsmobile Alero Knock Sensor location," and press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.

You will immediately get links to 16 photos/drawings of the Alero Knock Sensor location you seek. You will also find 10 more links using words, and an "Also try" list of 10-more similar words to use in your search on Yahoo to see what else might appear.

If you want to use your regular browser, here's the link you need to paste in so you can find those same photos/drawings: https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=photo%2Fdrawing+of+1999+Oldsmobile+Alero+Knock+Sensor+location&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-002

Need to know what dodge codes P0325, P0344 & P0340 mean


0325 knock sensor
0344 cam position sensor intermittent
0340 cam position sensor failure

I would replace the cam position sensor from the codes you provided. The knock sensor
would most likely be related to the sensor failure.

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.
