If the knock sounds like its coming from the top of the engine, under the head cover/s it could likely be a lifter (this is what opens the valves in the cylinders via the camshaft). If its coming from the bottom of the engine (crankshaft) it could mean there is a bad bearing on one of the pistons. Try to pinpoint or approximate where the sound is coming from in order to get a more accurate diagnosis.

It is either the tesnioner or the belt....easy way to find out is to spray the pulley that has no grooves....that's the tensioner. Spray it with WD-40 or equivalent, in the middle of the pulley. That is the bearing housing. Spray only that first. Start the motor...if it goes away, then you have found your problem. Try not to spray the belt.
If it still squeals, spray the belt with the engine running. If it squeals, replace the belt.
Has anything been done to the motor recenlty? If so, one of the pulleys may be a little off-centered.
Let me know what you find.

The exhaust is very hot, especially when you stop the engine.
You could be hearing the metal cooling off, or you could be hearing something dripping on the hot pipe. Or melting onto the pipe.
