Pontiac Trans Sport knock in motor

The best way to diagnose the noise is to hear it. Without hearing it all anyone can do is guess.
Is it a low dull thud? Goes up as the RPM go up? sound like its low in the motor?
That could be the lower end of the motor going out (worn bearings/rod knock).
Make sure you have oil in it.

Hi! I have a jeep 2001 Laredo and a noise is coming from the engine.I wanted to sell the jeep but how can i get this fixed?Some mechanics do not want to get involved! Thanks!

Depends on the noise you are hearing and how the engine is performing with the noise versus before the noise came along. It come be something as simple as an idler pulley making noise which is replaceable in 10mins or crankshaft main bearings knocking which would be more cost/time effective to replace the engine. Need a better description of the noise to diagnose online. Top/bottom, knock/tick, does it go away when idling/under load etc... the more details the better.

The motor is starting to make a knocking noise

Several possibilities for the cause of your knock. Knock at idle can indicate low oil level. Knock on acceleration can be ignition timing or low octane gas. It is almost impossible to diagnose this without more information.
