Thanks a lot for the advice it really does help. Haha I'm 16 and know very little about cars, any advice helps more than you know.
No problem at all, I don't know much about cars myself I'm just 24 but went to school for motorcycle and fourwheelers at MMI and know enough when stuff don't seem right some stuff I can figure out just from the know how on what I do but not a lot lol

Your first post said prev owner advanced timing. Was it ever reset to fact specs? Sometimes pinging from predetination (caused by over advanced timing or low octane fuel) can sound like knocking to someone that's never heard it before. Overheating would also be a result of same.

So should I change the timing to the correct timing and then see if the knocking stops?

Yes, of course. I missed that in your original post. Might not help but it doesn't cost anything to try it.

I decided to just let my mechanic fix it next week even if it costs a ***** load. I need my car back for work and school. But I will let you guys know what was wrong with it. Thanks everyone for all the help and advice!
