The knock sensor just advances and retards the engine timing only.

If there is a noise in the engine then you have engine are valve train problems. The knock sensor will not make the engine knock.

What is knock sensor on Honda s2000?

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.
