Engine Knocking

(1993 Infiniti G20)
in Denver, CO on January 27, 2011
Textbook sound:Knocking while idling, knocking speeds up with acceleration.Appears from parking spot that oil or something is leaking. Adding oil doesn't help, but oil DOES need to be changed. I am really scared. It's an old car, which would indicate I am in no financial position for a new car or costly repairs. Your help is appreciated.

A knocking noise from the engine that increases with engine speed may be a connecting rod bearing. If that is the case, major engine repair is needed. If the engine has many miles, repair may not be cost effective.
