The P0117 is pointing to a problem with the Engine Coolant Temp (ECT) Sensor. It's located on the top, driver's side of the engine. Carefully inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the visual inspection checks ok, most commonly, replacing the sensor will solve the problem.The P0328 is pointing to a problem with the Knock Sensor. The Knock Sensor is located on the engine block, behind the Stater Motor. Again, inspect the electrical connector and wire harness. It's not very common for either of these items to fail, and even more uncommon at the same time. I'd definitely suggest very carefully inspecting the wiring before condemning either sensor.
