One of two things I think, if you are using low octane "Regular" gas in this can and it says it requires premium, the car could be retarding the timing which could cause a knock on idle.
you could also check the compression for a loose valve that could be causing the knock, otherwise you might have a bent rod, which it sounds like you might. The kock will get progressively worse until you fry your engine and have to buy a new one. Good Luck. Talk to a mechanic.
