Noise when pressing accelerator

Hey guys I get a strange noise when I shit gear & press the accelerator… the sound is as if something is knocking…

“I get a strange noise when I shit gear & press the accelerator”

So…the noise is so bad that it is causing you to soil your briefs?
;-))

I’m sorry. I just couldn’t resist that bad attempt at humor.

Anyway…if you can describe where the sound seems to be coming from, we can probably be more helpful.
Does it sound like it is coming from underneath the car?
Or…from under the hood?

What is the model year of this Accent, and how many miles are on the odometer?
And…does this car have an automatic transmission or a manual trans?

Is that in all gears or just when there’s more load on the engine?

Hyundai Accent
Model-Year ?
