Knocking coming from what sounds like the engine in my 2015 Jeep Patriot?

Hey you all, I was wondering if anyone could help me. My Jeep is making a knocking noise when I accelerate. It comes and goes, and won’t make it when I’m going uphill. It runs just fine, has had routine oil changes, and is only at 65,000 miles. It climbs hills and also switches gears just fine as well, but I’m wondering what the knocking noise could be. It stops the second I let off the gas.

Thank you so much for any help.

    My guess is a bearing is failing in the engine. Maybe little end, big end or a main bearing. A Jeep mechanic should be able to tell you if he test drives the car.

    That depends

    Is it a knock? Connecting rods

    Or a rattle ? Ping from carbon buildup, timing off
