Could be a timing problem or worse case scenario bad cam and lifters. But I would start with putting the car on the computer and
make sure all your sensores are working right first.

My jeep has a knocking sound coming from the engine and makes the same clicking/knocking sound when I'm accelerating what could this problem be?

noisy lifters, or piston slap, i just had one where the piston went through the block, try on your next oil change putting a liter of tranny fluid in it with the oil, the better lubrication will settle a noisy rocker

Check your fuel pump or even your air intake could or might be loose or your putting cheap gas in your vehicle.
If your truck has a V8 I would suggest using 91 octane at Chevron or a Texaco.

Down shifts at 45 mph

There always has to be something to modulate the shift point, based on how hard you are accelerating. And that is probably what is going wrong. The standard way of doing this is with a vacuum modulator on the transmission, with a vacuum hose from the manifold. The hose could crack and leak, the diaphragm in the modulator can be cracked and leaking. It is also adjustable with an allen wrench through the intake port. But I don't know if a taurus has one. Some cars use a cable attached to the accelerator linkage instead. That is also adjustable.
Convertor problems are rare in my experience, and were either noisy, leaked, or most noticeable at very slow speeds.

The car is noisy when accelerating what could be the problem

Poor fuel or vaccuum leaks will cause valve noise or pinging on acceleration, try a good grade of fuel and a bottle of outlaw octane booster.
