Patriot Rough Idle..

HELP!! My Patriot is amazing except when idling it sounds knocky like i have sticky lifters or something. I changed my oil, gave it some additives and cleaners and its still the same if not getting worse. I was told it might be time to change my belts... Anyone had a similar problem and/or resolution.???

Does it still do it when it warms up? What weight oil are you using?
