07RAV4, you definitely have something severely wrong. Since you say the rear cylinders I'll assume it's a V6. Ours just turned 93,000 and we have not even a hint of knock at any time. I'd say it's either an ignition system problem, something amiss with the variable valve timing or a cracked or cracking piston. Since you say it goes away, or at least used to, after 30 minutes, I'd rule out the ignition and VVT system since they'd go away quicker. Sure sounds like internal issues. Is it under any warranty?
