A knock is usually a bad rod bearing on the crankshaft.

Alright, have a mechanic diagnose the noise. Could be engine related like Rowe said, could be something loose under the hood, like exhaust. No way for us to tell from where we sit. Good Luck!

Thank u

Well its a piston and bearings could that be fixed or would it be better to buy a motor

All depends if the crank journal is still good, and no scoring in the cylinder wall, or walls. If they are not, rebuild or look for a new motor.
