Knocking might be detonation in the combustion chambers--this can be caused by overheating. Check your coolant level. If it's low, you may have a leak. If not, maybe your fan is not turning (?). If all this checks OK, we usually advise to replace the thermostat, as it is inexpensive repair that might solve the problem. Any questions, please reply.

Why is there a very loud knocking sound in my 2000 camry engine?

The short answer is there is something loose or broken inside the engine.
Someone will need to narrow down where the noise is coming from and then the actual source. The engine may have to be disassembled to find out.

Car overheats. There is no leak in radiator. Thermostat has been changed. Now temperature gauge does not work in car. Drives for 20 - 30 miles and then I need to pull over and add water to cooling...

Toyota are pretty bullet proof but if u are putting water in after 20 miles and there is defiantly no leaks it's got to be going somewhere and the only place is through the engine and out as steam and head gasket will cause overheating , over pressuring . Even if the oil is clean ( not creamy)

Knocking noise in my 92 toyota camry and cant move in drive or reverse

It sounds rather like one of the drive shafts may have broken, but that is rare. What happens when you rev the engine in neutral, any knocking noises then? Does the oil pressure warning light come on? Is the check engine light on?

I'm trying to deduce whether the noise is in the engine or transmission somewhere.

I have a 2005 dodge neon sxt, in the morning when I start it up I hear a loud knocking noise from the engine but after about 15 seconds it gets softer but is still there all day when I'm driving around.

It is probably your lifters sticking. Check your engine oil level and if thats fine, then add some oil detergent/additive that says it will "reduce engine knock and free sticky lifters" run with that additive for a couple hundred miles or until the noise gets better. then replce your oil after that without using the additive

Engine knock

The idle issue is normal. The idle is controlled by the ECU. There are no adjustments for the idle. Regarding the knocking noise, that could be several things, and I am hesitant to comment without hearing it. Take it to a Toyota Dealer & have a tech listen to it. We are very good at identifying noises on the service drive.
