Got a oil change with the filter. Also replaced number two 02 sensor. Week later it starts knocking then turns into pinging. Now just flip a coin one day it knocks and other day it just pings and some days nothing. Now I live by the mountains and when I go shopping down from here it's not so bad but soon as I get home it starts in again. I have checked everything. I'm lost for words and haven't a clue what's going on.

It sound like the knock sensor stopped working but we should run the codes first. this guide will help with the knock sensor location in the diagrams below:

Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.
