Knock and tap are 2 different things. 

Run the car and get a long flat head screw driver, place the tip on the Charcoal Cannister, ear to handle of screwdriver, if its not there place the Screwdriver on the inlet, same thing and listen. 

Doing an oil change if Lifters should make a change or change oil to thicker grade.. 

If its the lifters..
