2001 S-10 4.3 Knock Sensor Location?

Where is the Knock Sensor on my 2001 Chevy S-10 4.3?

I am getting an intermitten, yet re-occurring P0327 Knock Sensor Low Input code, & would like to inspect the circuit wiring & sensor.

Any additional insight or input relating to this issue would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your reply.

Re: 2001 S-10 4.3 Knock Sensor Location?

How the heck do you get back in there?

I found a 2 wire connector from the harness hanging loose (1 Blue & 1 Gray wire) at the back of the engine, but still haven't seen the Knock Sensor or its' pigtail. I suspect I'm not plugged in.

Any other tips or tricks to finding or locating it?

Still didn't see it, but while I was poking around, I discovered my distibutor cap only had (1) screw in it & was loose. I installed a second screw to secure it & now I wonder if this could have been the problem in the first place.

^that works too. these are 01+ 2 wire knock sensors too guys.
any 4.3 2000 and older will have a one wire knock sensor thats completely different looking.
