Truck could be running hotter than normal and also check the EGR valve if its opening-that can cause detonation/pinging

Knock Sensor (2.3L) On left side of engine.
Knock Sensor (2.5L) On left side of engine.
Knock Sensor (4.0L) On top center of engine.

Not running hot, but heater bogs down motor, and cant find knock sensor the left side of motor auto zone shows knock sensor for 2.3l, but not for 2.5l. But it is pinging when shifting gears tryed better gas still did not help.
