    Have a Ford dealer diagnose this. It sounds like a possible carbon knock from the piston crown.

Hi there? check the oil level. if there is no oil in the engine, it will make it nock especially at the top end.
If the oil level is ok then start the car and remove the oil top up lead and check if there's any oil coming up to the top of the engine. it should pray oil out of the hole. good luck..

It's hard to accurately diagnose a problem like that without physically having the car next to you. Does the knock get faster when you rev the engine? If so it's most likely a rocker knocking and is something that should be checked out.
