Hello. In newer vehicles with electronic fuel injection and ignition systems, engine knocking due to bad fuel or spark is extremely rare. In most cases, if the knocking sound is consistent and increases in speed as the RPM increases, it's caused by lower levels of oil or oil lubrication issues. To see if this is the case, check your oil level or have the oil changed and see if this clears up the problem. If not, you may need the assistance of a professional mechanic to inspect and diagnose the engine noise.
