Knocking noise......

Hi Guys,

Just had the gearbox fixed in my 159 1.9
now I've got a strange knocking noise coming from the engine
Sounds like big end bearings or some such thing,

Doesnt always happen, in the morning it's nice and quiet, but after a few miles it starts off very quietly then gradually gets louder over the course of 50 miles or so once the cars up to temp I can get it to make the noise almost on demand (unless my mechnic is sat next to me!)

it's def not related to gearbox as it does it with clutch in/out in gear out of gear, seems worse at 2k rpm, doesn;t matter if I'm moving or stationary.

Anyone any ideas, or am I most likely looking at stripping the engine soon?
