If you hit a deer , and the car ran hot, it could hvae damaged the engine . the rings and bearings. thats where the knocking is coming from. Check for compression using a compression testor. it is put inside the spark plug hole. While the engine is cranked. it should mark about 55 on the dial. Check all the cylinders one at a time replacing the plugs back as you go.

89 nissan sentra axle going in and out of transmission when i had it up on a lift & engaged. What hold that in?

The axle (called a "Half shaft" in front wheel drive cars) is held in by a internal round Snap Ring, either this snap ring is damaged or the axle is badly worn or the groove the round snap ring expands into is worn and not retaining the axle. Replace the 1/2 shaft first, it the problem persists you will need to replace the transmission side case casting
