This replacement Engine Knock (Detonation) Sensor is just what you need to get your vehicle in good running order again!

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.

Specifications:

  • 100% New not remanufactured
  • Mounts to engine block
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Some models may use more then one
  • Mounting type: Screw in
  • Number of Terminals: (2)
  • Includes jumper extension harness

Knock sensor and harness Nissan altima 2001
Knock sensor took the engine light off. I tried earlier with auto zone version but it didn't work. Harness has reversed plugg shape. Couldn't use it as a replacement. I guess I could cut off the old one and pair it with the new one. Needs little work but I'm very happy with the quality.

Great quality at the best price all-around.
I tried to buy this part at the local auto parts shops but the prices ranged from 150 without the cable plus an additional 65 for the cable.
The lowest I found was $90 for the sensor and $45 for the cable.
I am so happy to have bought the knock sensor kit at such a low price, once I got the part in the mail I had my local mechanic install it and it works perfectly.
I highly recommend this store, because of the reasonable prices and quick mail delivery, the best thing is that the parts are high quality.
From now on whenever I need a part for any of my cars this is the store I will be checking first.

knock sensor relocate
This kit is perfect for relocating the knock sensor on the Nissan V6 I used the new harness and sensor to place the sensor on the top of the manifold for easy access. It looks like a factory installation with the harness and sensor properly shielded.

Part was made wrong.
Great price for the part. Saved us over 100$. Only issue was the harness, the part was on backwards. So it wouldn't line up with the original part for me car. The sensor its self fit like a glove.

Worked Great, Shipped Quickly
It arrived on time and worked great. My old knock sensor was giving an error, but since the 2000 Nissan Pathfinder has it's knock sensor directly in the center of the engine, it was easier to relocate the sensor as well. I spliced the new wire harness into the old one and secured the sensor to a new, more easily accessible area. It's doing great!
