Any lights lit up on the dash? Since it's knocking, where is the sound coming from? Engine? Did you check the oil level?

Yes all lights and guages work.knocking coming from passenger side next to serpentine belt and alternator. Yes a little low on oil but only took about a quart. We think alternator is dying but not 100%

Knocking in the serpentine belt area might be a worn pulley and sometime the water pump, the bearing fails and knocks and wobbles.

Its stuck at work tonight but I work next to a shop I will ask them. I don't trust any shops as my family got taken a few times for some good amounts of money. Wanted to narrow it down so thanks for the help. I will write back in if there is still no solution by end of day tomorrow

Before ANYBODY attempts to start this vehicle to analyze this "knocking"....you might want to pull the Engine dipstick and check quantity....quality.....and color of the engine oil. Does it smell like gasoline? If yes....do not start the engine.
