Question about 2002 Kia Rio
The knock sensor is located on the back of the engine, if you reach over
the top to the backside you can feel it. Helps to have a helper under the car to see it from the back side, and
from the top you can pull the plug and route the new one Knock sensor. You shouldn't have to remove anything to get to the sensor, but it may make the sensor easier to reach. If you have changed out sensors on a vehicle before and have a set of sockets or wrenches, you should be able to easily change the Knock sensor.

Knock Sensor Circuit Malfunction
What does that mean?
A knock sensor tells the engine computer when one or more of your engine's cylinders are "knocking", that is, exploding the air/fuel mixture in a way that delivers less power and can be damaging to the engine if prolonged. The computer uses this information to tune the engine so that it doesn't knock. If your knock sensor wasn't operating properly, so that it was always indicating a knock, the engine computer's response may have been to change the ignition timing on your engine. Knock sensors generally bolt into or thread into the engine block. This P0325 code may show up intermittently or the Service Engine light may be lit constantly. Other knock sensor related DTC codes include P0330.
