Is this coming from the engine? If it is it sounds like you might have some lifter problems. Or the worse part is if you have a rod knocking. Intrepids did have some egine problems.

When you hear a knock at the door but there is nobody there does that make you insane?

It does not necesarily mean you are insane. Sometimes, noises around your house can resemble the sound of the door being knocked. At other times, immature children - or even immature adults - may knock on the door, and simply run off, just for a laugh. Sometimes, if you have a habit of tapping without realizing it, you may end up tapping on a wood surface, and think it was the door, not realizing it was you.

It means your sulinoid is bad. Is part is sometimes built in the starter or separate under the hood. Likely under the hood, mounted to the passenger side wheel well somewhere.
