Just bought a used '95 Maxima with 159K on it last week. I drove it regularly for a week with no problems or strange noises anywhere, but now I have a knocking or rattling sound emanating from the...

could be just something as simple as the idler/tension pulley damper. Take a look at the belt and pulleys when the car is idling. When normal everything runs relatively smoothly. Identify the tensioner pulley, it has a smooth track edge and the belt runs around it with its back to it (the v belt 'face' runs over driven pulleys) and the bolt in the middle of the pulley remains stationary (it does not spin with the pulley as with others). If this pulley is spring loaded to apply tension to the v belt. If it shimmying around and the sound coincides with its action it is most likely that the damper, which normally smooths out vibration, needs to be examined. I recently sorted a car that was chattering quite loudly and all that was wrong was that the rubber bushing on the damper end had split and this was causing it it rattle. With regards to the belt, if the back of the belt is glazed and the front is cracked (you will see this plainly where it is exposed over the tensioner pulley) then it would be a good time to change it. They are not expensive and only take a few minutes to swap out. Have a mechanic give it a diagnostic look and for him to give an opinion. My guess is that the engine light is down to a duff oxygen sensor but without more details this is no more than just a guess.

It has the Serpentine Diagrams complete with Instructions and Directions.

Most Idler Pulleys are Removed/Replaced by removing the center bolt on the Idler Pulley. If you meant the Tensioner: removal of the Tensioner is also covered on the Links Diagram.

My idler pulley is making a squeaky light grinding niose.

Any Auto Parts store or even a Wallmart may have a WD 40. I would first try to spray this behind or right where you see the Axel of this Idle pulley.
Unfortunately it may be getting old and dried out.
If you have any grease or even - sounds funny - Vaseline - try smearing this on where the Axel meet's the round pulley.
