      Hi, I'm glad to assist you. The knock sensor on the Dodge Grand Caravan 3.3L should be threaded into the side of the cylinder block in the rear. Take a look under your van and see if you have this. Some models of this vehicle does not have a knock sensor at all.

      The Knock Sensor is threaded into the front side of the cylinder block, near the starter. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

      A:

      The knock sensor is attached to the cylinder block. It senses engine knocking using a piezoelectric element. A knocking vibration from the cylinder block is sensed as vibrational pressure. This pressure is converted into a voltage signal and sent to the ECM.
