I obtained the password that claimed that mine knock sensor was not working properly and i have actually heard the "knocking" for fairly some time and would describe my to decrease in gas mileage. Therefore I want it fixed. Exactly how much would it price for a shop to solve it? Or much better yet, how do I replace it myself? require to recognize as shortly as possible. Thanks for the help!I have actually a an initial gen 2000 xterra.
ya search is her friend,,,relocate or resister... I have a resister, lets face it not worth the 1000 dollars a shop will charge for addressing it top top a 00 x
thatyellow - The hit sensor is situated under the lower intake manifold on peak of the engine block. Over there is no access to it without removing the upper and lower input manifolds.Some civilization have reported the a shop has wanted to fee $800+ to carry out the work. Over there is a "resistor" mod that some civilization do that fool the PCM right into thinking the KS is working correctly.I have actually not had any type of instance whereby I believe the KS to have done anything to retard timing and also prevent knock. My personal experience claims if the engine is knocking the timing demands to be manually transformed with the distributor, or greater octane fuel is necessary.Where are you located?

The hit sensor won"t trip your service engine light, and also really doesn"t issue a totality lot if it"s negative unless you"re running required induction through a supercharger or turbo. I"m about halfway with replacing mine (waiting on a gasket) on mine "03 S/C and also it"s not a project for the weak-hearted.

Knock Sensor faultMy 2000 Xterra (4x4, 3.3L, Auto) started having a stuttering difficulty today and also the examine engine light come on (blinking at first). I"m obtaining a knock sensor failure and of food it"s in a really bad place. My question is have the right to I just include a brand-new sensor surrounding or walk it need to be in the same location. Ns was watching a youtube video clip ( where a man moves his top top his frontier and it looks choose the very same engine. Have the right to I gain away with doing this?Also, native what I"ve been analysis the knock sensor on mine non-supercharged x shouldn"t be leading to such a difficulty with the stuttering and unwillingness to advancement the spark during acceleration. Need to I it is in looking for an additional issue v my Xterra?

Did mine relocation with Maxima KS and harness by pulling the exploit tabs without any kind of splicing....check this link out...long however informative....

Nissan stop the below harness
So much I have the brand-new knock sensor sit on mine desk. Yesterday I saw pick increase the sub-harness indigenous the dealership and also they called me it to be discontinued and also that i would need to buy a finish injector harness with the sub-harness constructed in ($120.00). Needless come say ns left without a exploit to perform this fix. Anyone recognize where ns can find a sub harness the fits my KS?Update: I"ve to be on the phone call for hrs now questioning wrecking yards if they have the cable and so much no luck. Been waiting for a solution from a merchant on ebay about a cable and also KS combo because that an infiniti/maxima the is "supposedly" usable on an Xterra 3.3L but the compatibility chart on the sales web page says it"s only great for a 2.4L.
here is a attach through the OEM KS? is the KS with free shipping.....offered the seller $29.99 and he took my offer....just fyi

Looked anywhere for a equivalent harness because that the brand-new KS ns got but no luck. Bought a corresponding KS and Harness from Amazon for around $32.00 through tax and shipping. We"ll see how it goes next week as soon as the components arrive.Harness: are a couple of other discussions on KS relocation/replacement
The plan is then to spot that piece of harness in between the factory harness and the KS to basically extend the harness to relocate the KS?Just making certain I follow whereby youre walk here.
If girlfriend can acquire the old exploit connector off the initial KS its no a negative plan. I might never gain down and under there to reach it without removing the LIM.

Okay, so this day all the parts for the relocation came in. I additionally ordered a new Distributor because of a couple of things I read and about misfiring cylinders (Cyl. 2 to be my issue via mine ODB reader). I set up the Distributor ($94.00 ~ above Amazon!!) first, clearing my codes and also everything appears to it is in fine. Good idle, get"s up and also boogies on surface streets and also all the wierd sputtering appears to be gone. Hitting the freeway quickly to check for higher rev issues. Ns will execute the KS relocation this weekend... Probably.Update: hit the freeway and also I"m still having actually issues yet I believe it"s simply the timeing that requirements adjustment. Going come borrow a time gun today and also make adjustments. If over there is time ns will add the KS.
I simply bought harness off ebay $9bucks
Problem the did no fit knock sensor waist of money. Likewise I i found it the black wire inside was reduced going no where? So only one wire would connect which is strange! everyone look at 99 manufacturing facility Maxima exploit to view if undoubtedly both wires go complete length? do no i think they perform 96 connect to two wires yet truely only one makes connection if that renders sense.
