156 1.6 knock confusing.

I know the variator is shagged, it rattles on idle sounds like a diesel but dies down.
But the car also sounds a bit diesel like when running about 1500 rpm-2000rpm then the noise dies down, sometimes when i come too a halt it comes back other times it doen't.
Sometimes holding the car at 1500 rpm clears it but again sometimes it doesn't
Is this just the variator or something more terminal?
Planning on a full fluids change and belt/ variator change in the next month.
