Also understand thatI can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience isappreciated.

Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know youdidn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.
A defective KNOCK sensor can cause that by keeping your timing retarded too much or bad fuel causing a ping that is causing the KNOCK sensor to stay retarded too long.
