The thing that is annoying about cars is that there are normally multiple things that can cause just 1 problem. So I'll give you a list...... Could be piston slap. Or Ignition timing wrong Ignition system buggered generally Air leak in the throttle body or carburettor or any of the hoses around there. (this also causes the car to hesitate on acceleration or to idle erratically or to stall randomly, so depends on if anything else is wrong) Could be a build up of carbon or dust in the engine Could even be that one of the pipes around the throttle body or carburettor is blocked or partially blocked.

Realistically you need to take the car to a garage. Or systematically eliminate all the things above, and more which i probably have forgotten.

I'd ignore this to be honest, It's a diesel so it doesn't have a carburettor or ignition system like a petrol. If this advice was any good it would be for a petrol.

Knocking in a cold diesel that's just been started isn't that unusual, as long as it goes away. Different types of oil can make a difference to the noise it makes. Next time change the oil filter and see if you can find a type of oil recommended for 306 td.

What are three ways to change the velocity of an object?

It can only be accelerated or decelerated, by adding to, or deleting from, the applied force causing the motion, or by increasing or decreasing the (opposing) frictional force. Acceleration includes starting. Deceleration includes stopping. Directional change may be imposed without causing a change in velocity, although practically, this change would be difficult to accomplish.

Why is acceleration measured in meters seconds squared?

Acceleration is the rate of change in velocity, that is the finishing velocity minus the starting velocity divided by the time taken for that change. Velocity is the rate of change in distance, that is the finishing distance minus the starting distance divided by the time taken for that change. Distance may be measured in metres and time in seconds. In that case velocity would be measured in metres per second. Acceleration is then measured in (metres per second) per second or metres per second2.
