Get it up on a ramp , Clank / Knocking can come from anything underneath , SILENCER, EXAHUST PIPES. If the clanking happened since your repair , and not before , take it back to the Garage / Workshop and tell them about the problem

92 Dodge Dakota V6 dies randomly. Why?

hope that it isn't the head gasket (white smoke from oil or water ending up in cylinders?)-check water for bubling, and oil spending perhaps, could maybe be faulty lambda probe(exhaust)/air mass probe(intake) or broken exhaust/intake gasket causing wrong mixture(more fuel) - the car can spend much more fuel as normal, can also be the spark timing too late maybe.high pitch mechanical clanking at higher rpm can be heard from the valves - perhaps timing belt?. if it is some kind of electrical fail you are lucky :)

I don't know what my error code means and my washer won't start

I had the same problem, My issue was a small sock that was sucked into the drain tube at the bottom of the washer. The technician removed the bottom panal and drained (a lot) of water from the tubing, then the sock came out, it had been preventing the water from draining out. It didn't seem to be a difficult repair to do on your own

Accelleration noises of the magnitude you descibe makes me think the engines crank shaft bearings have gone. Has the oil pressure light come on recently and what's the oil level like.
Without being there to hear it, it's very difficult to diagnose. You should detect noises and rattle if you rev it when in neutral if it is the engine. If the engine is smooth in neutral and the oil is good you may have a bad diff or cv joint

2006 escape clanks when backing up

Cv axles normally click repetedly when moving ,doesn't sound like an axle,more like a motor mount or brake calpier .If you put your foot on the brake with the hood open ,put the truck in reverse and put a load on it and then in drive and load it you will be able to see the engine rock excessivly if a mount is bad.

This is normal. A slider gear engages into rectangular slots in a drive gear. The slots allow the dogs easy engagement into gear. The knock you are hearing is the engaging dogs striking each end of the driven gear. Please rate my answer, thanks.

Sportsters are noisey beasts, are you new to Harleys if so it is most likely normal. I know when I first got mine it sounded to me like it was coming apart. I changed to Mobile 1 synthetic oil and it quited up.

2002 Ford Explorer clanking sound

It can be brake pad pulsation because brake pads/rotors are worn.
You need to have them checked first. It is free in Midas.
Good Luck
