Default Knock knock

Hey guys,
I need help with an issue I'm having with my 2008 Element SC. I'm getting a knock from the back of my engine. It's not a constant knock. Only occurs when I do a hard acceleration or going up hill. There are no lights on in the dash. Has anyone dealt or heard of an issue like this? Please let me know if you have.

The engine has a knock sensor screwed into the block just to the left (passenger side) of the rear of the starter. Takes a 1 1/16 deep socket to get it out after you squeeze the rear of the plug (to release the lock) and then pull on the plug.;et=2%2c7)

I'm replacing the starter on my newly acquired 2009 with 110k mi. and since it looked like it may fail I just replaced it while I was there.

Apparently it sends a signal to the computer to decrease the timing till it quits or something of the sort.

Sorry for the late reply but I have been waiting since trying to join the forum Saturday and just now got permission to answer you.
