It is located under the intake manifold, bolted to the middle of the engine block. With the hood open, standing by the drivers side front tire,you can see it by shining a flashlight at the opening under the intake manifold. There will be a wiring harness running to the knock sensor and the sensor is held in with one bolt (12MM as I recall). It is round and black, a little larger in diameter than a quarter. It is possible to replace this without removing the intake manifold, but it is difficult. Wear mechanics gloves if you attempt this since you will definitely cut your hand on the sharp edges of the engine block. Good luck.

Standing on the driver side, looking under the center intake manifold; you will see a round black object with a 10mm or 12mm bolt in the center, which is the knock sensor.

Knock sensorThe knock sensor for a 1996 Nissan Altima is located on the backside of the block above the oil filter.But before you go and change it out, run a tank of the best/hightest rated gas you can find and see if that fixes the problem. On my 1995 the Knock sensor is located under the plenum and intake manifold on top of the middle of the block.

The knock sensor for most Nissan V6 engines is located directly under the intake manifold. So to replace it, you have to remove the intake manifold. Good Luck.

A knock sensor is located in a specific area on the block or cylinder head in order to sense spark knock occuring and send a signal to the ECM to retard the timing. Relocating the knock sensor would defeat its purpose.

I really depends on the engine. On the 4 cylinder 2.4 ltr engine, it is on the block near the oil filter.

center of the engine near the top. It is going to be by the heads.
