Possibly change in the baffles or something in the blower housing.

Dursngo sounds like a valve or rod when acelerate and running bad

If it knocks heavy under acceleration it will be a big end first or a main second. Disconnect each plug wire until there is no knock under acceleration and that will point to the piston and big end that is faulty. Remove the sump and that big end bearing and if the crank is still good replace the bearing. As you cannot get a single bearing shell then it may be a good idea to replace all the big ends . On the back of the shell will be the size of the bearing in thousands of an inch so if it says .002" then you need shells that are that much over size. Take a shell into a spares department and just ask for bearings that match that shell.

Knocking noise in engine of 2002 Nissan maxima

This is hard to say with hearing the noise but try to pin point the noise , is it coming from the top or bottom of the motor , the knocking noise could be a bearing in the lower motor or may be something else making it sound like a bearing,

2000 Chrysler Concorde has a knocking sound when it accelerates. What can it be?

Sounds like it could either be a spun out main bearing or camshaft bearing or it could be knocking from low octane gas, depending on how loud it is. A main bearing or camshaft bearing that is spun will make an unmistakably loud cyclic noise. While, the low octane gas will cause a softer random rapid knocking sound that sounds like a babbling brook. Check for codes in the engine that might explain why there is an octane related knock, like a knock sensor not working or something like that. Good luck on finding a solution to your knocking problem.

Knocking noise only when its a rolling got new tires and front end alinement and the noise is still there.Turn the wheel and hear it good change out bottom ball joints knock still there

Sounds a lot like a pitted wheel bearing. Try jacking up the front of the truck and rotating the wheels by hand while listening closely. Some noise is normal but anything rhythmic points to a bad wheel bearing.

Hard to say over the internet but I will try to explain. If the noise is a distict KNOCK KNOCK and it sounds like it is coming from the bottom of the engine, then it most likely is a rod or main bearing. If it is a TAP TAP noise that sounds like it's coming from the top of the engine, then most likely a valve lifer is failing/failed.
the fact that it goes away when the car is warm, makes me lean towards a bad lifter. Normaly if a bearing is bad and knocking, the noise doesn't go away.

The KNOCK noise will be somewhat hollow sounding and the TAP TAP sound will be more solid. If the KNOCK KNOCK is solid, then a rod or main bearing has most likely failed to the point that a new/reman engine will be needed.

Heavy mechanical knocking on final spin yet drum rotates freely when turned by hand and at low end drum speeds. Doesn't point towards the bearings. I have noticed that drum appears to be rotating slightly...

The knocking is the drum running out of balance due to the drum shaft being worn or corroded, or a worn bearing, a bearing can fail even though it may not sound noisy
Either way it is assoiated with the drum and entails a complete strip down, trust me on this, I do know what I am talking about.

Knocking sounds in the lower engine area usually are from loose/damaged connecting rod bearings. Repairs are centered around resurfacing or replacing the crankshaft and the associated bearings. (many penny!)
