How to replace the knock sensor in a 4th gen Maxima, part 1 of 2. Part 1 goes over how to use a ratchet and lots of extensions to get to the knock sensor bolt.
Part 2 goes over how to use the wrench and prying tool (screwdriver, prybar, etc) to loosen the bolt.
Yes, I said 'pain in the ass' what, 8 times? I must've edited out another half dozen.

1995-2001 Nissan Maxima: Spark plug replacement
How to remove and replace the spark plugs/coil packs on a 4th/5th gen
This is an updated video to replace the one from a few years ago that was
completely washed out and didn't really cover the subject as well as I
would have liked.
Tools required are a 8mm socket (or phillips head screwdriver), 5/8" plug
socket, extensions, 4mm allen key/bit socket for the front coil cover
bolts, and a 12mm socket for the EVAP CPVCV (if so equipped).
1995-2003 Nissan Maxima: Rear strut replacement
How to remove and replace the rear strut mounts on the 4th/5th/5.5 gen
Maxima. This will work for strut replacement as well, or any other reason
for you to tear down the rear struts.
You'll need a spring compressor (unless you are installing pre-assembled
strut assemblies), 12mm socket for the strut mount-body bolts, 14mm socket
for the upper strut mount retaining nut, and a 17mm socket for the lower
strut mounting bolt.
P0325 Knock Sensor Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at:
Wells YouTube (great videos I recommend you subscribe)
As you can see by the title this video covers the diagnosis and repair of a
P0325 on my 1997 Subaru Legacy L model with 2.2L engine backed by an auto
trans. I did have some trouble with the 'factory' diagnostic procedure but
thankfully my friend Mark at Wells Electronics had a test that involved a
voltage drop across the sensor that worked perfectly. I hope this video
illustrates the import ants of understanding a circuit that you're
diagnosing as opposed to just throwing parts at something, with a little
time and effort you can do a proper diagnosis.

in mind this repair is relatively easy. You should consider buying the

2003 Nissan Altima S - Camshaft & Crankshaft Position Sensors
2003 Nissan Altima S 2.5L W/Automatic Transmission
INTERMITTENT NO-STARTS & ROUGH-STARTS WITH NO DTCs SET.
A LOCAL AUTOSHOP HAD REPLACED ONLY THE CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR, MADE SURE
NO DTCs PRESENT AND OPS CHECK GOOD.
HOWEVER, THE PROBLEM RETURNED.
NOW, THE SAME AUTOSHOP BELIEVES THAT THE FAULT IS WITH THE TRANSMISSION
FLEX PLATE, WHICH MAY HAVE DAMAGED THE CRANKSHAFT POSITION SENSOR AS WELL,
ACCORDING TO HIM.
ESTIMATE IS AT ~$750.
The mechanic didn't try to replace the Crankshaft sensor alone, he went
straight for the Tranny drop. I figured go with the cheap fix first. If it
comes back, then we will look into the Flex Plate.
I replaced the recently replaced Camshaft sensor & the never been replaced
Crankshaft sensor. So far, so good.
Replacing the Camshaft sensor is a 2-minute job.
The Crankshaft sensor will likely take 30 times as long.
It seems like the Old Crankshaft Position sensor I removed was a bit high
on a resistance check, when compared to brand new sensors. With too high a
resistance value, the sensor may not make use of the full voltage it is
receiving and/or it may not return the required amount of voltage to the
Powertrain Control Module (PCM), which will lead to irregular engine
operation or a no-start condition.
Both Camshaft & Crankshaft sensors are the same part number. The 3rd
version of the sensor is encased in metal, not plastic.
The OEM part number is 23731-6N21A ($44 us)
The old part numbers were encased in plastic. These part numbers should not
be used: 23731-8J005 & 23731-8J006

Nissan recalls that problem to reprogram the ECU. What happens the crank
sensor electrical terminals seep oil into the crank sensors plug. The new
metal crank sensors correct this problem. Location of this sensor on the
back of the motor is difficult to change and you need gorrilia finger grip
to depress the connector green lock and remove the sensor. Depending on
your cars Vin# Recall Campaign # R0712 NHTSA# 07V-527. Hopefully your
factory warranty replaces the sensor no charge 5yr/60,000 mile. The
campaign only covers the ECM reprogram. The ECM reprogram makes both
sensors act as one so either will allow the car to start. Stalling and not
starting is a safety risk.

Explains the Knock Sensor Operation and Testing. The Knock sensor is a
actual microphone screwed into the engine block. It is tuned to listen to
the exact frequency of an engine knock, which is a high frequency ping. A
failing knock sensor will cause all sorts of problems to engine operation,
such as skewed timing controls, loss of performance and power and ever the
system going to linp-in mode. Learn how it works and how to test this
incredible component. (note: We allow all schools and training institutions

How to replace an O2 Sensor and save money.
I show you how to replace your O2 Sensor. This is being performed on a 1997
Chevy Tahoe. Automotive oxygen sensors, colloquially known as O2 sensors,
make modern electronic fuel injection and emission control possible. They
determine if the air fuel ratio exiting a gas-combustion engine is rich
(with unburnt fuel vapor) or lean (with excess oxygen).
