New to the forum and all help is appreciated. Daughters car has a knocking sound that sounds like a wheel knock but it only happens when the car is under power. If you apply gas heavy it does not occur but under a small amount of gas especially at higher speed when you back off gas to maintain speed it occurs. any ideas. 53,000 miles

Its hard to guess what it could be off the description but sounds like your describing a backfire. Check the exhaust system for a cracks to holes. Just guessing here.

Are there any codes? A check engine Light?

Where is the sound coming from?

Localize it then get down and dirty and do a visual inspection?

Keep us posted!

Goodluck!
