The knock sensor is underneath the intake manifold on the rear of the engine.
If you got an engine check code from Autozone or some other goof ball company like that go and get a full tank of the highest quality gas and see if that fixes the problem.

I bought the knock sensor for a 2000 Nissan Altima GXE. We cannot find out where it is in order to swap it. They want to charge us over 300$ to do it.


This all depends on what motor you have. is it a 4 cylinder engine or v-6 engine?
noting that you said it was a gxe i will assume it has the bigger engine the V-6.

This is easy to replace just make sure to get a good sensor . use nissan or delphi as nissan knock sensors do not last long if they are after market sensors, but easy to replace on this nissan, the location of the sensor ison the right side of the engine. the best way to see would be from under the car. if you look at the right side of the engine or let is say the side facing the rear of the car, look on the block and there it is, use the new one as a guide to locate the old one.

it is very simple. if you lay down underneath the car and look up at the oil filter it is just above the oil filter. you should be able to get it out with a 12mm wrench.

I have a 96 Nissan Altima GXE with the 2.4 liter motor that has a problem code coming up P1401 do u know what it is


this code is telling you something is wrong with your EGR temp sensor circuit, this is due to an extreme low or high voltage detection from the sensor by your cars ECM computer. check the harness connections or check/ place your EGR temperature sensor, this should solve your issue, thanks

My 97 nissan altima is occasionally stalling out when I come to a stop. When this does happen it acts as if the engine is starving for fuel as I start it and for 10 or 15 minutes afterwards - it studders...


This happened to my 1997 Altima GXE a couple years ago. The coolant sensor is bad ($30-40 part). The coolant sensor is reading that the temp is cool on a warmed up engine and actually causes the engine to run rich (thinking it is a cold engine). The problem is intermittant and happened at the worse times.
