It appears to be a knock sensor.
Can't tell you that they fail,or it is something else causing the sensor to set a code.
I would check it out,but I wouldn't spend much money doing so, or loose any sleep over it.

Maybe a Nissan Specialist will help us out here.

If you have misfire issues at an idle, that may be your only issue.
You don't need to throw spark plugs and a long laundry list of parts at this, as everyone else does.
Idle Control,Throttle Sensor Etc not working correctly and causing it to shake and stall,thus setting off the Knock Sensor, as it stalls,just some ideas or quess at best. Pretty much need your vehicle to diagnose

3.0l. What is causing knocking?

If the code is p0325, it should be repaired, HOWEVER, on nissan products from 1996 to 2002, a p0325 does NOT illuminate the check-engine lamp. Knock sensor on that vehicle is for PING control not for emissions reduction. On other vehicles (say a chevy with a p0325) it WILL light the check engine lamp which is an automatic smog fail.

If you have this problem only when you fill your tank I would check the fuel filter first. The fuel pump will also give you problems after filling the tank due to the extra load.

What will happen if your knock sensor wire are not being connected and your error code p0325 keeps coming back after you reset the code?My truck is nissan pathfinder 1998 xe model.

DO NOT EVER change a knock sensor. It is a total waste of $600 and will do it again. It is not harmful to get this code. Usually, it means you have broken motor mounts, typically the right side. Do not use aftermarket, they fail quickly.

P0325 how do i fix it? tnx.

A P0325 refers to the knock sensor electrical circuit, not the sensor itself! So check all wiring & connectors leading to the sensor, back to the PCM. Good luck, I found a good P0325 article HERE

1998 Nissan Pathfinder - Code P1444

Clean your mass air flow sensor with electrical contact cleaner. It's located between your air box and intake when it gets dirty it tricks your car into thinking it's getting less air than it is

OK the sensor may not be bad, you might have a broken wire to the sensor. Or a bad plug, I would by pass the sensor plug - cut it out. Cut one wire at the time and reconect using a crimp on union (bu**) conector. You may also have a timing issue, that a tune up might fix..

There is a switch inside on the left side of dash that says e-at power on or auto. what is this?

its used under heavy acceleration, keeps the tranny in the lower gears to give you more power when your in a hurry. saves you gas too because your not trying to push the pedal harder to get more speed...
