    A few years back, I had a knocking noise in my engine. It started one day and I discovered it was my 3rd spark plug. It had come loose in the plug body. After I replaced it, the engine sounded normal. This was about 8 years ago. Never jump to conclusions about knocking noise until you look things over throughly. By the way, mine was a '97 4 cylinder. :D
