Hello I have a 1991 toyota pickup and the problem is that when I reach about 2500 RPM I hear a knocking noise. It only does that at high RPM.

What type of knocking noises are you hearing-is it coming from the engine or somewhere else. The engine could pinging/detonating

It's coming from the engine. I let someone rev up the RPM and I can hear it in the engine, underneath. Even on just a steady motion, car not in gear at idle and stepping on the throttle at 2500 RPM you can hear it.

Could be worned valves and valve lifters/camshaft-if its more like a ticking/tapping noises-check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge
