Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Mazda 626 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 170000 miles

I have an engine knock on a 96 Mazda 626 4 cyl 170k mi. Can't afford another car or engine right now. Any ideas? Thanks

Tried:
- If I pull the lead from the no. 1 cylinder, knock goes away.
- Changed oil, spark plugs, leads to spark plugs
- Tried Lucas oil additive
- Precision Auto diagnostics: said noise from lower engine bearings
