Question about 2001 Subaru Outback

1 Answer

My check engine light came on. Took the 2001 Subaru to Aoto Zone. The Tech. checked it out. The machine said it is the Knock Sensor. The light has now gone off. What should I do? Is it an immediate danger to my engine or can I wait until monday to get my mechanic to look at it? The car is not showing any signs of a problem? Tank You N.L.

Leave it alone, it was most likely a glitch.

Where is the knock sensor located on a 2001 subaru forester engine 4 cyl. Replaced wires and plugs ...runs great but sensor does not reset and comes right back on after code is erased. are they a one shot...


When facing the engine it is in the rear right hand side.

The knock sensor is a piezo electric crystal, when they go bad the must be replaced.

Looks similar to these

Knock sensor 1999 Legacy 2.2


As far as there being no knock sensor on a 99 2.2 I beg to differ. I have a 99 legacy and just had a diagnostic done and mine is bad. If there is no knock sensor why would it say it was bad and why does Auto Zone, Advanced Auto and my local Subaru dealer sell them. Mine is located under the throttel body and they are rather hard to get to. No offence to who ever said ther is no knock sensor but maby you should recheck your information becuse I know there is a knock sensor since I just changed mine.
