My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If the engine is turning over but not starting and you had a knocking noise issue as well with this fault here it is very possible the engine itself is damaged.I have seen the engine become damaged in the past before causing this fault here needing replaced.The oil warning may not have come on if there was an issue with the oil pressure or level sensors.I have seen some of these sensors act up before causing no warning and can lead to engine damage.You would need to have the engine inspected/checked to see if there is damage needing repaired.
