Customer Question

I have a 2015 Nissan Sentra. Just drove down to Orlando from Maryland and my car started to make a knocking/ticking sound. It ticks slightly when I start the car and gets very loud when I give it gas and start rolling. Also has the sound of metal grinding. When it is in cruise control the rpm gauge jumps about 200 rpms. The knocking is not as no as noticeable when going at higher speeds. .None of the engine light are on and the temperature gage is normal. What could be the problem?
