Lack of oil, Bad bearings, worn parts. try an oil change and add some lucas oil stabilizer (20%) of oils capacity and see if it goes away if it doesnt most likely your engine is just getting worn.

As you did not say which vehicle this can only be a general answer Unlikely that a faulty coil would cause an engine to knock. Very possible it would cause bucking, if the coil is failing there would be a lack of spark. This would cause bucking/missfire, which may cause the engine to shake on it's mountings possibly causing a knock from contact with the vehicle frame.

First thing that you should do is check and see what your oil level is. If you have over filled the the vehicle with oil this will cause the engine to knock, and cause further damage to your engine. Make sure that vehicle is on level ground and check the oil dip stick. The oil lubricating the dip stick should not be beyond the full mark. If it is remove the drain plug from the oil pan to bring the oil to the proper level.

Why is your 1990 Nissan 300zx knocking?

There are several different reasons that an engine will knock. Unfortunately, the most common cause for an engine knock, is when the connecting rods and the pistons have more play than they should, causing them to move around in the cylinders. I would recommend taking it to a mechanic and having them listen to it and get their opinion. Try not to drive it too much before getting it checked out, as this can cause your engine severe damage and possibly leave you stranded on the side of the road.
