This is most likely either a piston noise or a connecting rod bearing knock

Noise louder than usual when accelerating. It's not the exhaust

So when parked and you rev the engine is it loader of just when you drive? Front of back? Do you have a friend that could rev it while parked while you walk around to see where it is coming from?

Engine knock & loss of power/acceleration

It appears that you have lost water and over heated the motor. The systoms you describe are what happens when an extra hot engine starts to seize the pistons in the bore. Cooling down allows the engine to restart but the noise comes from broken rings and aluminium being removed from the sides of the pistons. If you have an EFI car the cpu unit is probably limiting the engine revs just to get you to athe nearest service place.I suspect you will need a replacement engine

When i accelerate in my 06 focus 1.8 i get a whooshing sound from the engine for a few seconds, i dont get it when i just rev it, any more ideas ?? Phil

This is just the throttle sucking air when the engine is under a load. When you rev the engine in park it wont make the noise as much or at all. Try driving it and slowly apply the gas and see if it happens.

Engine has a knocking noise when acelerating from a complete stop.

If is does it if you rev the engine in park it may have a bad engine. If only in gear it may have a bad drive axle which is making noise.

Time for a visit to a transmission shop for a proper diagnosis. Sorry, but if you do it now, it may save money in long run.
