Hi, the Knock sensor is located on the lower side of the engine near the oil pan rail and goes into water. Make sure your engine is cool before you start the job. The best way is to drain all of the coolant out of the engine first, then disconnect the wire, then remove the knock sensor. WARNING--antifreeze will come pouring out when you take the knock sensor our so WEAR SAFETY GOGGLES to protect your eyes. Do not use any sealer other that the sealer that is on the new sensor.
Take care

2004 Chev Silverado 5.3 fouls spark plugs left side only


The knock sensor code is likely not the problem but the code is a side effect of the real problem. Causes could be a malfunctioning upsteam O2, a sticking fuel injector or a valve problem.

Have a 2004 Chevy Silverado need some help. Where is the knock sensor located?


There are two knock sensors on your engine, and they are underneath the intake manifold. You will have to remove the intake to get to the sensors.

KNOCK SENSOR KEEP GOING OUT


Make sure you are not over torquing it. if you screw it in to much, it will give false readings and if it is not screwed in enough, it will also give false readings.

There's a delicate balance to be known and, if this sensor is over torqued or, not torqued enough, it will malfunction.

Knock sensor location


The knock Sensors are located under the Intake Manifold at the top of your engine. The top will have to be taken off along with the intake manifold. Knock Sensors in past silverados used to have a problem with leaking water that corroded the sensors from washing the engine. Most times when you go to replace the knock sensor you will have to replace both along with the wiring harness that includes the the gaskets the knock sensors are surrounded by. After that you have to check the resistance to make sure you dont have any problems and then reinstall all parts along with a new intake manifold gasket. A good mechanic can do this for you in a day and charge you around $400. If you try to go to some place like a chevy dealer you will pay over $800. This is from experience of just replacing mine 2 weeks ago.
