Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
I got the car and it was knocking so i put a new head on it and its still doing it
I hate to inform you that changing the head does nothing to solve this issue. The knocking sound is coming from the the piston rods inside the block. It would be in your best interest to either drop a new engine in it. Unless you want to do a complete engine overhaul sir; I would advise against the latter.

there could be an air gap in you coolant circuit, make sure you have purged the entire cooling system of air that might have been be trapped in the cooling circuit when you changed the T-stat.

It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

Well, I would replace the air filter, make sure the air hose from the air filter to the intake is not kinked or blocked and check for vacuum leaks. If these are all fine, I would check the fuel pressure as it is possible the pump is weak and not supplying enough fuel.
