Default Engine noises

My 02 started to act funny on me, you can hear some ratteling when its hitting 20 to 40 mph, changed the knock sensor, no luck, injector cleaner, no luck, been using premium gas and the knocking goes away for a couple of days, I know that in carburated cars the rattling was caused by the engine not being timed correctly, took the car to auto zone, they hooked up the code reader and a issue came up with the ABS, and they also said the there was a major communication between the computer and the sensors, anyone experienced this problem before? Do I need to replace my computer? ny info. is appreciated

Do you know what the ABS sounds like? It hammers... and you might be confusing it with pinging.
If it is pinging, your knock sensor could be bad.

No problems with the ABS and already replaced the knock sensor
