Could be a few issues:

1. Timing chain (lose)

2. Knock sensor

3. it goes on and on

Does it sound like it's coming from the engine compartment?

You can tell if it's a U-joint if the vehicle is in PARK, and you get underneith and try to twist the drive shaft. If the shaft is not moving at all, the U-joints are proably good.
