Why not remove the rocker cover and see if you see dropped valve.?? Next pull the injector nozzles and look for damage,

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 2 years ago.

Drain oil and look for metal flake! That may give you better idea if head needs to be removed. Or engine pulled out!

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did change the oil as soon as the knocking started. No metal or water at that time. I'll pull the rocker cover tomorrow. Thanks
