Tried to fix my knock sensor

Alright everyone, I got the P0325 code and I did some research about it. I decided it was a cracked knock sensor like everyone says happens to them... Well I pulled it off and looked it over really well and it wasn't cracked but I already bought a new one so I decided to put the new one on. I put it on and started up my car and it starts up fine but then dies after a second, then if I give it gas it will die even quicker. Now when I scan for codes it doesn't show any codes. I put the old sensor back on and now the same thing. I'm not incompetent in working on cars but I'm also no expert. Any help?

If the engine was fine before, then an electrical connector might have been knocked loose, or a vacuum hose was pulled off inadvertently. These are common problems especially when working in the limited spaces around the engine. Go back over everything you did, and check wiring and hoses in the area.

By the way, not all Subarus are identical. We need your car's year, model, engine, transmission information to be sure the information we provide is relevant. Perhaps include it in the post, or in your ID information at the left (go to UserCP and fill in the information).
Do some searching about P0325 using Google. There's a lot of hits from various discussion groups, some not indicating any final solution but suggesting possible causes, while others, such as Still getting P0325 CE even after replacing knock sensor. What next? - NASIOC, seemed to have resolved the problem, at least in the case of the OP (see post #13). Perhaps this thread, or another, might help . . .
