The knock sensor for the v6 engine is at the rear of the engine block while the v8 engine has the sensor under the intake manifold. Here are some diagrams so you can see what I am talking about. (Below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

V8 two wheel drive automatic 125,000 miles.

Where does the knock sensor plug into the front of the engine or the back? I cannot find the plug.

The knock sensor will be located on the right front of the engine for the 4.2L and on the right side of the engine for the 4.6L and 5.4L engines. I can post diagram if you specify your correct engine size.

Under the intake manifold. It has to be removed to gain acess.

What is the code?

Does the motor make any noise?
