Default Knocking type noise :(

Well i went on a drive tonight and i started the truck up to leave and i head a strange noise coming from the engine compartment at idle and at speed and theres a knocking type noise that i think is coming from the leftish side of the engine, it was 5am so i didnt really take to much of a look at it didnt even see if it had a light. Everything looks attached to where its suppose to be lol but ill take a closer look later today...just curious to see what u guys think it might be.

Edit: I dont think its i rod knock but whatch me say that and thatll be the problem :/
