Hello. If there is a knocking noise then it may have some bad fuel or it may be another failure like an internal engine problem or a bad sensor. I usually start the diagnostic process by scanning the computer for codes, checking to see if there are any sensors that are reading incorrectly.
If those are all fine then I check the fuel pressure to make sure that the fuel pump is fine and then do a compression test to see if there are any internal engine issues.
