Do you know if the knocking is in the upper or lower part of the engine?

Sounds like its coming from lower i comes and goes its weird. When you accelerate its there but when u hold at the same rpm is seems to go away or at least get quieter

Could be a rod bearing by the way you describe it. but without tearing into it it's going to be hard to say.

alright thanks for the help maybe time to trade it in for something newer lol
It would be alot cheaper to fix it. Unless you just want a newer one.
