Dies when put in gear and knocking noise from engine

Knocking noise usually indicated low oil, dying with knocking when put in gear usually means NO oil. Check oil level and fill it. If that works you need to check the oil level every day to see if it is leaking and how fast it is leaking.

AC compressor noise

it will not eliminate the noise. you'll need to replace the bearings.besides from the knocking noise is the air coming out from the vents cold? when you recharge the freon is it totally empty? if thats the case you probably have a leak in the system . check all the lines and connections for leaks using liquid soap add a little bit of water to make it bubbly.start the ac and use a sponge.normally when there is a leak the oil will leak together with the gas so ypu'll need to add some refrigerant oil as well pag oil is best..but i'll need more details so i can help you out

I recently got a oil and filter change now i hear knocking noise

If the oil has been changed, why are you putting more oil into the engine? Does the engine use/burn oil, or have an oil leak? If you have none of these problems, then you may be overfilling the engine which is just as bad as no oil.

Engine knocks when startup but disappears after engine warms up.....could the oil pump be defective.......what about the knock sensor....

Its probably lifter noise,check what grade of oil is in the car or change it to a slightly thicker grade,i would expect that the car has a lot of mileage on it,if the oil light goes out quickly on the dash when starting its not the oil pump(very uncommon),knock sensor is for ignition timing to stop pinging,nothing to do with your noise,generally its engine wear

Knocking until car warms up

Sounds like a lifter noise. worn lifters can't keep oil in them anymore so over night the oil leaks out. when you start the vehicle, you will hear a ticking noise or knocking noise till the lifters fill with oil again. only remedy is to replace the lifters.
you could try an additive but it's temporary.
