V6 Knocking/pinking

My 98 V6 has started knocking below 3000rpm sometimes. If I am going up hill 2nd gear it knocks... I don't let the engine labour at all, but have to give it some beans before the knocking stops.

Any ideas of the cause? Would an ECU reset help or is it a bigger problem?

I use Shell V-power almost exlusively, plus spark plugs were changed just under 10k ago. Car is on 90,000kms (about 56k in miles)

Any ideas greatly appreciated
