Part Details

  • Also Used For:   LS Swap

A knock sensor is like a small electronic microphone that is usually attached to the engine block and listens for a couple of things that a engine might do. One thing it listens for is pre-ignition or knocking inside the engine usually caused by a few issues including dirty gas, wrong engine timing low octane fuel, wrong air / fuel mixture, and also by the wrong spark plugs. It also listens for engine run on which happens when the vehicle is turned off, but tries to keep running until it stalls. Once a noise is detected, the knock sensor sends a signal to the cars computer which in turn will retard the timing at 2 degree intervals until it corrects the issue. If the knock sensor fails, it can seriously damage the engine, as continuous pre-ignition could cause melting or fractures in the pistons just to name a few.

Great!
I received my products before the expected time and it was in excellent condition.
January 31, 2017
Awesome!
I recently purchased 1 knock sensor for my Silverado from competitor. My mistake was not purchasing both knock sensors (plus trusting my mechanic at the time.) I then purchased 2 knock sensors and 1 harness from 1A Auto (which came as a kit) for $50.30...by the way I work at that competitor I mentioned (A.Z.) and I payed $54.00 (that price was with my discount).?? Conclusion; received brand new parts prior to date, with lifetime warranty! Strongly recommend to everyone in need of auto parts.1A Auto is Awesome! Thank you!

03 Chevy Parts
Parts came in quick and cheaper then buying them at the store. Save lots of money for the same thing. I will be buying from here again.
March 23, 2017
Just what I needed.
Didnt think there was even time to process my order when I pulled my parts out of my mail box
June 19, 2017
Not too great
Well they arrived agter 17 days and looked to be of fair quality..but then i installed em to find one (1 of 2) didnt make any circuit and was 100% defective but the 2nd sensor (2 of 2 ) and the harness worked and still are today.. so it doesnt pay to buy a cheap sensor and to remove my whole intake manifold again to put 2 good quality sensors in was as drustrating as waiting 17 days so not impressed at all and wont be buying anything electrinical again...stay smart and get good quality parts for your trucks and only so tbe job once thats savings to me...
June 20, 2017
Great Kit Great Price
Great product but the selling point to me was the quality video on u-tube.
June 23, 2017
Great value
Sure glad I ordered both knock sensor and the harness great value
July 2, 2017
Delivery was fast
Items as discribed and corrected my problems vidieo was very helpful
July 8, 2017
Did not fix problem
After installing sensors, took vehicle for a test drive and the next day the check engine light came on again, for the same trouble codes. P0332 and P0327. When I have a free weekend, I will uninstall these parts and put in OEM ones. Do not go cheap people, buy OEM.
July 12, 2017
Great parts and fast.
I found them to be very helpful. My parts was the right ones good price and came fast. Yes i will use them again. For the lowest prices and right parts you cant do any better. Thanks.
July 14, 2017
Bulldog replace knock sensors
Work great installed them and my check engine light on knock sensors cleared lets see how they go in a few weeks or months from now will do another review but for now Im happy thanks 1A auto for great product and quality keep it up satisfied
July 31, 2017
Running strong
The sensors are not only affordable, but they work. 1A Auto videos showed me how to replace the parts better than any Chilton manual. I feel confident I did the job right; my check engine light is off; my bank account is not drained. Is there higher praise for these?

2000 Silverado knock Sensors
I am glad 1Aautos site buying recommended buying the kit when I was doing a search on the parts. If not I would have been in a jam and had to order the wiring harness assembly. Thanks. Also your video was a big help not exactly the same but it allowed us to see what was involved. I would elaborate more on the gasket set by Felpro thats not included with this kit & add it to the kit I think its a must . Fortunately I did buy head of time.
August 12, 2017
Awesome
Thank you for saving me a ton of $$. Mechanic shop wanted almost double for same parts. Codes went away and I passed emmissions.
August 28, 2017
Not worth it
Installed both sensors and wire harness, clear code and after a few miles codes came back, cleared them again, still coming up, check all the connections everything looks good, I should of listened and got oem parts, you live, you learn , now I have to spend more money and do the whole thing again
September 3, 2017
knock sensors
I received my order in a couple of days ,I tried to save some money by ordering the intake gasket elsewhere which didnt work out so well 10 days later i finally received the gasket and installed both today. THE next time Ill order all my parts from 1AAUTO.
September 25, 2017
Excellent Products, Excellent Pricing
Perfect OEM Replacement, fast shipping, and quality videos. The associated A1Auto video was extremely helpful and made for a fast (relative term here) and easy installation. Fit exactly in place and both work great. Would HIGHLY recommend that you replace both sensors and the harness just due to the difficult nature of getting to them to replace them. Thanks A1Auto for an excellent experience.
October 3, 2017
Great price, great product
Knock sensors and harness arrived fast, they work as expected and considerably cheaper than GM stock ,
November 21, 2017
Nonsense knock sensor and harness kit
The purpose for installing this kid was to get my check engine soon light off install very easily once I got the intake manifold off thought the problem was solved 2 Days Later the check engine light came back on and was throwing the same code do yourself a favor and buy the original equipment
December 20, 2017
I am impressed with the ease of doing business with you all. Ordering process is simple,the parts are correct, delivery is on time.I have 2 older vehicles, an 06 Tahoe and a 99 Silverado, so im sure we will be a regular customer.Thank you and keep up the good work..
December 25, 2017
Awesome kit, needs a little added protection
Have an entire kit pre-assembled is great, I just wish the wiring harness had some heat shield protection hoses instead of trying to add them myself.
February 20, 2018

Fast and friendly
In the last year I have purchased many different parts from 1aauto for my truck and wifes SUV. The parts showed up fast, they were correct and most importantly they were much cheaper than the competition. The online videos are extremely helpful for the do it yourselfers.

Don’t waste your money
My car was throwing a code for one of my knock sensors. Decided to purchase from this website as it was a good price for the knock sensors themselves and the harness. That was a huge mistake. Upon having them replaced by a professional mechanic, the car started throwing codes for both sensors. I then went to a local auto parts store where I had to spend more money. However, as expected, those fixed the problem. I tried to see if I could get my money back or at least get new ones not that I needed them anyway and received the response about how products that have been used are not subject to refund because of their “quality control� however how am i supposed to know something doesn’t work if it is not installed? The representative tried to tell me they can’t send me new ones because I didn’t call to have them replaced. I did not have time to wait around to receive new ones. I told her this but this company just didn’t care. I probably wouldn’t have minded as much if they were courteous about it. This is not a webiste that cares about satisfaction to their customers. Do not buy these if you need knock sensors. You’re better off spending a couple more bucks.

Engine knock sensor kit and free install video
This is a five star kit from 1aauto and would recommend it to anyone but it was the video installation instructions from 1aauto that made me buy this kit. The video was easy to understand and covered everything I needed to know for a successful install. And best of all increased gas mileage and no more check engine light.
August 1, 2018
Fast shipping. Good quality parts. My favorite site for parts.
August 6, 2018
Engine knock sensor kit
Installed the sensors and harness. Everything worked great. Only reason for not five star rating is would be nice if a intake gasket was involved in the kit.
August 18, 2018
Sensors/electrical....always buy OEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Went to the trouble to install knock sensors and the new ones immediately triggered the check engine light and knock sensor codes. Replaced with OEM and all is good. Nothing against 1A Auto, I have purchased several items that worked beautifully and their videos are very helpful. Gave one star because the shipping was very fast.

2003 gmc sierra
So far so good. Followed the video, went without a hitch.
September 15, 2018
Knock sensor...
Seems to be quality parts! Saved me about $150 from the price my garage gave me on the parts. Truck is running smooth, no more check engine light. :-)
September 19, 2018
Not for GM
They were a pleasure doing business with even when they sent me replacements for free but I still had to purchase GM parts for the computer to read the sensors

No good
Couldve just been my specific pair, but they didnt work to spec, drove the truck ten miles and the light came back on, ended up replacing the next weekend with ACDelco parts straight from the dealership.
June 11, 2019
Defective knock sensors
Engine light was on and after replacing the knock sensors and harness and running the truck for 60 miles there was no change in the performance of the truck and the engine light came back on with the same result and had to purchase the knock sensors again. Might have been defective sensors I purchased from you because the second set worked and now the engine light is off and passed emissions,

Not sure what to think yet!
I ordered this knock sensors/wiring harness kit months ago and installed them. They worked great for about a month, and then my check engine light came back on and said they were out again. So I re-ordered them and had to wait several weeks before they showed up (I live in Oklahoma. I believe 1A Auto is located in Kansas, so it usually only takes about 3-4 days for items to arrive) I’m going to put these in my truck and see if that fixes it. Maybe I just got a bad batch the first time.

How long would an average mechanic take do this job?
Larry H January 29, 2016
According to the service manual I had it listed as 4.2 hours.
Robert R January 29, 2016
1 1/2 hour
Curwood D January 29, 2016
Id imagine a seasoned mechanic could do this job in 4 hours. Cleaning the intake manifold and other ares around the knock sensors could take some time if done thoroughly. Most wont take the time as their task is to complete the job under the time suggested by the Chilton manual they use to determine the jobs labor rate and still get paid for a 4 hour job. Any conscious backyard wrench twister should be able to get it done in 6 hours. Hope this helps.
Barry E January 29, 2016
Hello, A flat rate shop can charge upwards of approx 4 hrs to do the job. It can be done sooner depending on your abilities and tool availability.
Brian F February 2, 2016
It took me about 4 hours the first time, in part because I did clean the engine as I took things apart. The second time I did it, it only took about two hours.
Eric I February 3, 2016
It may have taken an hour to tear down and put back together plus a half hour of cleaning. However, my back sensor was rusted so badly it disintegrated when I tried to remove it. It took 5 hours to get the bolt out and I twisted up my stud puller. This was my first time and Im just a do-it-yourself kinda mechanic. The 1A Auto video is what made it easy except for that bolt.
Garth M August 6, 2017
It all depends on how bad the sensors are and rusted in they are.
Debra T August 28, 2017
6 hours
G A July 27, 2019
Four hours
G L September 3, 2019
A few hours. Only because you have to remove the whole upper intake.
Nicholas R September 8, 2019
Are these OEM AC Delco parts? I dont want to tear the top half of my block off and fit these to only replace them again shortly after
Richard B February 2, 2016
Bought these for my 01 6.0 and they worked perfectly. The only thing is make sure not to over torque the sensors they have a very low torque spec I believe its 15 ft lbs
Eric T February 3, 2016
TThey are not OEM AC Delco parts. I put these in and they went out again. I talked to a few mechanics and due to the sensitive nature of knock sensors its better to pay for the AC Delco ones. I put the ac delco ones in and havent had a problem since. Make sure to seal around them with rtv if its a silverado. There is a safety bulletin about it. Also do not, repeat do not over tighten them or they will almost immediately fail.
Korey W February 3, 2016
I am assuming you are using these parts in a GM vehicle. If it does not say "AC DELCO", do not assume they are OEM AC Delco parts. 1AAUTO sells AC DELCO knock sensors. To avoid tearing the top half of the engine twice, use only OEM AC DELCO knock sensors. While replacing the knock sensors, also replace the knock sensor wiring harness. If you are planning to clean the engine bay, clean before replacing the knock sensors. Water and knock sensors do not mix very well!
Roy G February 3, 2016
The harness worked fine, but the ECM on my 2005 Tahoe did not like the Knock Sensors. I ended up returning the Knock Sensors and getting AC Delco (1A Auto was great to work with on the return).
David W February 3, 2016
Also, you might want to buy a replacement intake manifold gasket.
Eric I February 3, 2016
I did buy gaskets
G L September 3, 2019
what brand are the knock sensors?
Javier M February 6, 2016
they are "1a auto" brand. they look identical to ac delco but they dont have any markings on them. FYI do NOT over torque them it will ruin them...
Nick L February 6, 2016
After market doesnt have name brand
Shane O February 7, 2016
I dont remember, but they are 100% compatible, they fill and look like the Ac delco
Elis L February 7, 2016
Hello, These are a 1A Auto house branded kit.
Brian F February 8, 2016
House brand made in another country

Should I replace the intake gasket when replacing knock sensors?
Everett M June 17, 2016
would better safe than sorry
Harold D June 17, 2016
While your there, its a safe bet to replace them
Brian F June 17, 2016
yes
Christopher S June 17, 2016
Absolutely , I did when I replaced sensors ... Check 1A Auto for price .. Make sure you change /replace the lead wire connector when you change the sensors
RICHARD R June 17, 2016
Absolutely. If youre going that deep, you should have the peace of mind when its all back together.
C. Daniel P June 17, 2016
YEs I replaced the intake gasket because this is the right thing to do. Also I replaced the harness I
Calvin J June 17, 2016
Yes. You are already there.
Barry E June 19, 2016
I didnt. The intake manifold is low pressure and the 16 year old gasket was still very pliable. I dont see the point. If your gasket has visible flaws when you pull it out, I would replace it.
Garth M August 6, 2017
If you go to the specs. It always recommends replacing when removing. You will never get the same torque again and the rubber portion of the gasket varies
Mark M August 12, 2017
Yes. Dont take the chance of having a leak
Debra T August 28, 2017
absolutely
Burt reynolds B February 23, 2018
Yes
G A July 27, 2019

Does the kit come with two knock senors?
Jaypaul S October 31, 2017
Yes it does come with 2.
Trey O October 31, 2017
Yes
Michael S October 31, 2017
Yes the kit does include 2 knock sensors and 1 harness. I suggest you purchase AC Delco knock sensors and a genuine GM harness. I purchased this kit from 1A Auto. The harness end terminals werent crimped properly(fell off the wires) and the knock sensors had to be replaced due to throwing codes the same day as installation. Ended up doing the job twice. Second time with OE parts with no issues after two years.
Rick S November 1, 2017
Yes
Connor B November 21, 2017
comes with everything shown
Burt reynolds B February 23, 2018
Yes
G L September 3, 2019
Yes and the connector
