    the knock sensor is on the back side of the block on passenegr side. take a look and make sure you did not knock the wire off.

    found the knock sensor! there are two sensors. one is on the backside of the engine in the middle under the exhaust manifold. the other is in the front directly opposite
    the one in the rear. did'nt have to replace, wire was knock off. THANKS for heads up and info. i have a 3.8 engine. the 3.1 and 3.4 only have one sensor.
