Where is location of knock sensor for kia spectra 03


The knock sensor is hidden by the intake manifold bracket which is on the firewall side offf the car.To get to it you have to jack the car up and support it.with jack stands .always disconnect the battery when working with electrical peices.The knock sensor will be under the intake manifold bracket which is to the left of the alternator.To remove it remove the bracket, disconnect the plug to the sensor, remove the retaining bolt and then remove the sensor.I hope this helps finding it and replacing it.

Where is the Knock Sensor 1 located


Solution:
1. If you have to pay for a solution here on fixya, why not take it to a mechanic.
2. For the price of a live chat here on fixya for a one time solution you can purchase a complete repair manual and solve the problem yourself. Daah???? No more $20.00 piece mill each time you have a problem with your car.

I hope this eye opener will be a help to others.

I really don't expect to see this one in a post.

What is a knock sensor? And could this cause a car to lose power?(2002 Kia Spectra)


A knock sensor is simply a microphone that is screwed into the engine block. It is there to listen for pinging or engine "knock" that is caused by poor fuel or extreme load. When the computer hears the knock, it retards timing, which in turn reduces the tendency for knocking, however, it will reduce power to a certain extent as well. It is possible that a faulty knock sensor can be telling the computer to ****** ignition timing too much, it is also possible that there is a mechanical problem within the engine that is mimicking the sound of knocking and retarding timing as well.
