Do you think the sound originates within the passenger compartment or possibly from within the engine compartment? There is not much that might knock inside the car . If it knocks every time you switch off I would suspect the engine compartment and a mechanical cause.
Might be something a loose component, maybe the exhaust hitting something as the slowing engine vibration causing a harmonic at a certain point. Possibly, but unlikely, an engine mounting.
Have somebody assist you to trace the source of the sound, it is hard to do alone.
There used to be an Audi advert in which a sound could not be traced and it took an expert to track it down. (He had to oil the pendants on the woman driver's earings!)

2001 Mazda Protege DX 1.6l engine sluggish when turning and won't start.

It's possibly for the timing to be off even if you line up the marks. If it have variable timing the the marks only are a reference. You need special tools to properly set up timing

I was driving my 2005 2.2 ictdi honda when a low knocking noise started, as if i was going over the cats eyes in the road, this noise intensified until the car cut out completely. all electricis where...

Have you checked your oil lately
Things don't sound so good
Did you happen to look at the oil pressure gauge when the car was knocking
I have a feeling your have seized your motor.
When you attempt to start the car do you hear a clunk from the starter
If you do, remove all the spark plugs from the engine and disconnect the coil packs
try to turn it over again and see if the starter can turn it now
By pulling the park plugs you remove the pressure of compression from the motor.
You can also try to turn the crank Manuel with a breaker bar.
If you cant get the motor to turn over you have seized the motor and it need an overhaul.
Hope this helps give feed back please. FixYa

My Toyota Vitz has a problem of engine knocking even when the engine is cold. the knocking reduces if i press hard on the gas, other wise it knocks while shifting and initial pick up as well.

Knocking can be caused by a bad bearing somewhere in the engine. When the engine is accelerated it might go away due to higher oil pressure.

When did you have the oil changed and how many miles does it have?

Is the knocking rapid (5 or 6 times a second) or periodic (1 or 2 times a second)?

Some knocking is due to low octane gasoline if you experience it at highway speed.

Good luck on solving this knocking problem.

If your engine has a rod knock the engine has to be rebuilt or replaced rebuilt is about $2000 to $3000 dollars and a new motor even more.It is unusal for a rod to be out around 60,000 miles unless it was ran real hard or run out of oil or way low on oil.
