How many miles on that engine? Sounds to me like you need new crankshaft bearings, especially if there's knock. Hate to say it but your '95 is probably not worth the cost of the job. You're better off selling the car to someone who can do it, if you can't do it yourself.

You could, if you wish, take the car somewhere and have them assess the problem, just to make sure it's not something else.
