check the anti knock sensor on the side of the motor
A knock sensor detects engine knock in the motor(aka pinging, detonation, or uncontrolled explosions. it basically means the motor is about to blow up or potentially could.) the second part to a knock sensor is that it keeps the ignition timing as advanced as possible to make the most power without making engine knock. So if you have a bad knock sensor or have a check engine light form a knock sensor your car will be slower. this is when your car goes into LIMP mode which is basically a preset running condition which is safe for the motor.
on the side on engine near starter and on back side from bottom in between motor n tranaxle only thing there

We need to know what engine you have to answer that.

it reads if your motor is knocking. say bad rod bearings or loose valves. it will kick your check engine light on if it reads knock from the motor.
The knock sensor detects spark knock (aka ping), sends that signal to the engine control module (ECM), the ECM retards the timing until the spark knock stops.
The knock sensors yes there are two are located on either side of the motor (4.3LTR Vortec) below the heads in the center area of the engine block. There are a place for another sensor just above where the knock sensor goes but these are for other sensors.
