SOURCE: knock in engine
Check your timing belt too, it might be loose already. My car had the same problem and thougt that engine was going bad on me. Tried also the additives but didn't help. So I did a litle invistagation to figure out where the knoking sound is comming from. It sounded near where the belts are. Opened the cover and voela! found the belt was loose - took it out - upon invistegation, belt was starting to wear out out - one of the teeth was starting to peel off. Replaced it, retightend it and replaced the belt tensioner too - so far it's been 4month now and still no knocking problem.
Hope this helps..

Hello, I see you have a trailblaber with a knocking noise. It sounds like you have an electric fan clutch issue. Believe it or not your vehicle has an electric fan clutch. It looks just like the older non-electric but if you look on the driver side of the fan shroud that is the wire connector you see. It is an exspensive part just for the clutch but thats exactly what you are describing. It doesn't get louder just fast with rpms. Please rate my answer, Thank you

It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped
