Question Engine Knocks

My engine started knocking the other day. The knock would speed up and slow down as I used the accelerator. We looked at it this afternoon took the top cover off and ruled out the rocker arms.

I found this YouTube vid with a Nox doing the same thing as mine. When I read thru the comments the OP had taken it to a mechanic and said it was the oil pump. What do ya'll think??

Where do you get your fuel?? Avoid BP.

This is my 2005 Equinox LS 3400

Oil pressure is good, even changed the oil to see if there was any metal in it. None. Any ideas as to what it is??

sounds like two things that are touching each other, have you looked if the drivebelt is clear?
