CEL P0325

Hey all. I have a 97 Base with 137K on the odometer. I have had the car for a year and a half now. About two months after the purchase it threw all kinds of CELs. I really don't remember every one of the codes. Anyway, long story short I replaced the distributor, spark plugs and wires, and ignition coil. Another couple months went by and the EGR valve, EGR ports and IAC were cleaned. Next the head gasket went out. Head was removed, shaved, and tested, with new valve seats installed.

Skip forward a year to now and she has thrown the P0325 (Knock Sensor no. 1-Circuit Malfunction Bank no. 1 or Single Sensor) twice within the span of 2 weeks. It threw this code only one time in the past year and it was immediately after I had to fill her up with 87 octane. I was in the middle of nowhere and 87 was all they had and I had no choice but to use the 87.

My question to those who have dealt with this CEL is what is the best way to proceed? Just change the sensor out? By the way the car has been running / idling just fine. Oh yeah and I did search and found quite a varying degree of responses to this issue. One guy even said he removed his sensor completely. WTF?

Re: CEL P0325

Knock sensor was replaced (Duralast) and the code P0325 still comes back after a short drive. The code was cleared with my brother's Scan Gauge after the new one was installed. Obviously my stock sensor was bad, seeing that the plastic part of it was in pieces. The wire connector to the sensor and the wire looked perfectly fine. My wife also has a Prelude. A 2001 SH and her head and camshafts had to be replaced. During the head replacement on her car the knock sensor was bumped and it disintegrated instantly. She has the same Duralast sensor in the SH for five to six months now and there has been no issues at all with hers. Also my Lude ran fine before the replacement and runs / idles fine now. Absolutely no abnormal sounds or hesitation at all. Any ideas guys?
