knocking for these old cars is normal. As they get older the lifters start wearing out and they cause a ticking noise often only on start up. Try some slick 50 Full Synthetic it stoped the ticking in my car during the duration of the oil change. some mechanics will tell you don't do it but i used it and never had an issue.
