Spark advance problem

Hey I have tried searching on here for the answer to my problem with ignition timing but haven't found it. If there is a thread that answers it please refer me to it.

1999 Prelude base model

My problem is that anytime i give her some gas at low rpm, in other words when i put a big load on the engine, i have engine knocking. If i drive the car normally i won't generally hear it only when i stress the engine. Also it sounds like it's coming from only one or 2 cylinders.

Since it only happens when i'm putting a big load on the engine, I assume it's related to the spark advance. The spark advance is supposed to be automatically retarded when i increase the load on the engine, right? As far as i know there's no adjusting or timing that can be done on the ignition timing of this model prelude.

Any help would be greatly appreciated on how to fix this!
