if it is a hard sounding nocking noise it's probally rod bearings , if it is a ticking sound then it sounds like lifters or the rockers either way it's time for a rebuild .... Oh how the oil pressure ???

If it's the lifters u will here a clicking noise at idle and that can be adjusted, but like CAPRICE2LOW said if it's a hard knock when you accelarate it's going to be a rod that's knocking. Could be one other thing, but very unlikly. If it's like a pinging noise when u accelarate, but only when u accelarate it could be your timming.

It's probably cheaper to rebuild the whole engine due to the cost of labor unless your going to replace the rods yourself, but even then you'll save yourself alot of headaches by having it rebuilt. The cost to have the engine rebuilt is about 600 dollars. Thats doing it yourself, but I don't know the prices where u live at

Start with the easiest first, a loose flywheel to torque converter bolts will make a similar noise.

Yes, if its the bearings, get a full rebuild.

rod knock is usually most apparent under load. (accelerating and engine braking)
