SOURCE: 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.

Had the truck the truck to the shop and they said it was the sensor. I had it replaced and it hasn't screwed up since. If you search out this problem on the net, this is a problem with engine and its oil pressure sensor. Apparently, Chrysler is aware of the problem.

Ther e is a chance your injectors are leakin g down and there is excess fuel in the cylinders. Not a good thing. So, you fuel pressure and injectors need chkg. good luck

The first thing I would definitely do there is change the oil. Used oil tends to loose lubricity and becomes thinner than it was when in the container. When hot, it becomes even thinner and will cause a drop in pressure.
Most jeep engines hold around six quarts of oil, so by adding what you did the new oil helped a bit but cannot correct the problem.
I would change the oil and use either a 20w50 oil with a pint of Marvel oil, or change to a good synthetic with a container of Lucas additive. It is possible that whatever oil you have been using is causing a carbon buildup that is beginning to block off the pump pickup screen. Either of the above suggestions will help with that. In engine oils, price is important...cheaper oils are high paraffin base which causes deposits to form.
You don't want that in your engine. Only exception is Wal-mart store brand oil which I believe is Quaker State (re-packaged). If you opt for a synthetic, it's not a bad choice and is cheaper.
Make sure you use a good quality filter. The filter is what keeps the oil clean and useful during its lifespan.
One note... If there is any tapping or knocking inside the engine, that is caused by internal bearing wear and should be corrected immediately. No oil can compensate for internal pressure loss and if caught early, can be repaired. (otherwise, later, engine will need to come out and be overhauled or replaced.)
Any pressure problems can be verified by installing an external mechanical gauge on the engine. That is the only way to know exactly what is going on with any degree of accuracy. (dash gauge is electro-mechanical).
