Question about 2001 Chevrolet Prizm
It sounds like the crankshaft was damaged and is wearing out the new bearings he put in. There is a little play in the bearing were it meets the crankshaft and the is the knock your hearing. I might only make the sound at a specific RPM. Check also the oil screen is not cloged up and starving the engine of vital lubrication. You can purchase a Crank kit from any local auto store that will contain a remachined crank shaft and all the bearings needed to rebuild the bottom end of the motor. You will have to pull the motor to peform this action.
