Something is loose. Since you didn't say from where the sound comes all i can guess is that an engine/gearbox mount is worn out or loose.
If it's an engine noise than it's detonating  and that can have a lot of causes(in order of importance): timing advance too high, bad fuel, low fuel level in the carburettor, bad distributor, carbon buildup in the chamber and a lot more.
Check all of these.

    If it knocks only when you open the throttle wide at low/middle revs while using good fuel then it's surely engine detonation cause by bad timing (too advanced).

My 2002 Impala started knocking while on the freeway. I couldn't try past twenty miles per hour without it knocking again, I put two and a half quarts of gas and it's still knocking!

ok just checking well usaully when it starts knocking that means that either the cam bearings or the crank shaft bearings are already damaged and if the knock is coming from either placemits not good how many miles are on it

My Toyota Vitz has a problem of engine knocking even when the engine is cold. the knocking reduces if i press hard on the gas, other wise it knocks while shifting and initial pick up as well.

Knocking can be caused by a bad bearing somewhere in the engine. When the engine is accelerated it might go away due to higher oil pressure.

When did you have the oil changed and how many miles does it have?

Is the knocking rapid (5 or 6 times a second) or periodic (1 or 2 times a second)?

Some knocking is due to low octane gasoline if you experience it at highway speed.

Good luck on solving this knocking problem.

Rapid flashing turn signal and headlamp out, replaced headlamp, but still no light. Checked fuse, it is fine.

the rappid flashing turn signal means usually that another turn signal bulb on the same circuit is out. make sure you installed headlight bulb correctly and socket or connector is not corroded

My honda accord 1996 lx won't start

Your starter bendix isnt engaging, if your replace your starter your problem should go away. The rappid ( firing ) you are hearing is the starter spinning but the bendix isnt moving out and engaging the flywheel.
