i know that they are usually located on the block, and this is what puzzles me, but the thing is this is the only sensor that is identical to the one i pulled off of my truck,btw it came off the intake manifold

im now confused but either way im going too the junkyard tomorrow to try to pull it off another truck...

ill keep you posted, again thanks for the help g_k50

I can pretty much state that the picture from Rock is not a temperature sensor. The temp sensors I have seen have a 'potted' bit that protrudes into the airflow, and is protected a little bit by a cage.

yeah well that picture is if a knock sensor and the oem number matches perfectly, idk man, its weird from my experience other knock sensor have been screwed onto the block just as g_k50 stated, but this one was screwed onto the intake manifold, so i was a bit confused, but ill be leaving to the juckyard in about 30 min and i hope i find it of another ranger,

i hope everything goes well, ill be back later with another update,

I think the knock sensor on my Ranger is mounted on the bottom of the intake manifold.[1985]

i replaced the knock sensor and my truck is still runnning the same, i have noticed a small difference in when in idle the truck doesnt bog and turn off, i suspect that there is a vacuum leak somewhere in my truck i just have to find it which is going to be painful and tedious,
the truck still bogs when i am accelerating it just starts kicking and bogging on me
any other ideas?
