Sounds like a rod bearing is bad check your engine oil dipstick and
look at the oil in sun light or with a flashlight if a bearing is going bad
or is bad you will see flakes of metal.

4d56 deisel engine, after opening the engine, good idle but when i accelerate knoking sound appear

Not sure what you mean by opening the engine.

The combustion process of a diesel is not the smooth burn and increase in pressure of a petrol engine but is virtually an explosion causing a sudden rise in cylinder pressure. This is the source of the typical diesel knock and is more pronounced in some engines and some injection systems, especially when accelerating. It can be scary for those unfamiliar.
Electronic control tends to soften the noise.

Knocking might be the result of a mechanical problem (piston, connecting rod bearings, etc.) but if these things have been eliminated other causes of excess knocking can be excessive injection timing advance, dribbling injectors, bad spray patterns...

03 kia sorento Engine knocking after replacing water pump oil pump and timing belt

Who did the work? take it back. If it's DIY double check your work. Knoking as in metalic engine , or knocking as in gas preignition. If gas preignition, timing belt is off a few notches. If it's similar to this google: 2003 kia sorento interference engine
You may have valve timing off so much that your pistons are running into the valves. Bad news!

4d56 engine knoking noise

I see that the engine is a Mitsibushi and suppose to be quite common. There are rebuilds and used engines on

Do a Browser search and you will find Repair manuals and possibly a Blog about this series.

Most of the knocks in an engine fall into several catagories. Lean fuel ratios and the failing of a knock sensor and poor fuel. The other catagory is excessive clearance in bearings in the crankshaft, camshaft, or rods.

You can buy an octane booster to add to the gas fuel, be careful if it is a Diesel. There are additives to raise the Cetane rating of Diesels too. If the noise leaves with the additives, you may have a bad "Knock" sensor or bad fuel.

Check your fuel pressure. If the pressure is weak, then the fuel charge is thin and then a "Knock" sensor can not adjust the problem away.

Over advanced timing. If the timing is too far advanced the engine can "Knock". You have to look at all mechanical components that affect timing.

There are varying intensities of a noise which leds to a diagnosis. It is something that has to be experienced and talking about it can not adequately express it. Try the few solutions I mentioned.

There is a website,,which has a history of consumer complaints and resolutions by year, make, and model. You might find a clue there.

I hope my solution helps.

1997 pontiac grand am knoking topside, ajusted valves, replaced fuil filter, fuuil regulater, intake gasket, cleaned injecters,what eilths could it be?

If im correct i beleive those engines have hydraulic lifters in them. Thats probably whats making the noise. it's useless to replace them. It's not gonna affect your engines performance. just let it knock
