We can't hear the knock, It would only be a guess. Take it to a service center near you and ask them what it might be, then get a second opinion.
it sounds like you could have a spun rod bearing but I agree with #1 and have someone qualified to listen to it

Please confirm that the correct oil was used and that it is at the proper level. A technician may offer try an engine treatment. Be very clear on all the information for the vehicle so they can accurately diagnose your noise.
