If you have a front wheel or all wheel drive vehicle I would guess it's a CV joint (front axle), not the engine.

Engine got a knocking cold start, silint when hot


It has developed a clicking engine noise on a cold start. After the car has warmed up, the sound goes away. ... Clicking or a sharp tapping from the valve cover on top of the engine would point to a valve train noise. A dull tapping or slapping sound from the side of the engine block would point more toward piston slap.4 Nov 2011

Ing sound coming from left handside of xsaara picasso


If the knocking sounds like thudding or something dull is knocking on the car, remove the left front wheel and check the drive shaft boot. It could have been torn and parts of it is hitting the lower arm. If it comes from the engine, check the engine mounts, all 3 of them.

Ihave abnormal sound on ignition on starting engine


You have a rod knock. Do not drive this car until you have this looked at by a professional. Drive this car and the engine may self destruct.
