I would go with the engine being bad.
A knock sensor only sends a signal to the engine computer when there is a vibration or noise like a spark knock. The computer then adjusts spark timing to compensate.
If the engine is knocking such as a bearing knock, the sensor will be activated.

Nissan pathfinder 1998 code p0325 what sencor is it there are 4 Sencors ???

It is the knock sensor. But before you do anything first check the vacuum line which is on the front right tire on the rear side of the tire where small hose from charcoal canister up over the shock to the purge valve. That vacuum hose from the purge valve connected to a metal hose and then the metal hose connected back to a rubber hose on the purge valve. that metal hose because it gets rusted cause a leak causing Injector 2 to missfire.
