Hello there, a variety of faults will cause a knocking noise in the engine. The most common would be a belt tensioner, idler, engine rods, engine bearings, low oil pressure/level, power steering pump, or alternator. With so many possibilities the best bet would be to have a professional technician such as one from YourMechanic inspect the vehicle for engine noise and proceed from there.
