Going by the same sort of problem try turning your air conitioning off to see if it gets rid of the problem. As this is what caused mine to knock

This could be your water pump. The faster your engine turns, the worse the noise gets. Check the water pump for leeks. Turn the engine by hand (put a spanner on the crackshaft holding nut and turn) and listen for the noise. This will point the faulty componant. As for the square, if it is on any metal part it may need a welding repair. Without seeing the hole, I can be no clearer in my advice on the hole.

FIAT PUNTO. Ticking for short period following start up


Definitely change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles. After you change it add a half cup of Lucas engine oil suppliment when the engine is hot.
If if goes away you know it's cam or lifter issue. If it doesn't the ticking you hear may simply be your fuel system.
