Question about 2000 Kia Sephia
If you can be more specific about the engine knock it might be helpful. I am assuming this knock happens after the engine warms up and can be heard while the engine is under a load. If it is a strong knock sound then it would be a crank shaft bearing. You may want to check the oil. Check for level and condition. If there are water droplets on the dip stick or anti-freeze in the oil, or oil in the anti-freeze, you could have a bad head-gasket. Redused oil pressure, pressure testing the cooling system, doing a cylinder compression test, could help in figuring it out. Also it is possible that it could be piston slap or the fly wheel is hitting inside the bell housing.
