Engine knocks and high oil consumption ,Toyota Hilux 3L Engine.
I had an engine reworked, changed out a used 3L engine block for the old block was worn down pass the bore limits.
However, the Bearings were reused but all other items including the rings,Valve Stem Seals, Gaskets etc,were replaced.
After a month of running the Vehicle, the oil consumption increased and eventually the mechanical knocking sound become obviously loud.
I intend to have another work on the engine,however what are some tips to solve the current problem?

Depends on how bad it was overheated and weather or not it was overheated because of low coolant level or air or coolant circulation Can be as bad as a cracked cylinder head or engine block, Seized and weakened cylinder rings causing low compression or oil burning, Can also cause scored pistons and liners, or even seize the engine right up so it no longer rotates

It shows that your car may be sludge or carbon distress. Sludge or carbon called the two killer contemporary engine, as long as it is harmful use gasoline engine not timely change the oil or will cause the engine coke using inferior oil. Recommendations for the engine cabin cleaning time, manufacturers use the specified oil; depth maintenance timing Use obd2 for automotive diagnostics , you can improve vehicle safety performance and driving more safer.
The knocking noise has to be a deep knocking noise if its the crank bearings . If the oil is very gooey the oil was never changed properly at the mileage or months as required. Also if the oil is thick as you state it must have 15,000 miles or more on this oil. 10,000 miles the oil will still be thin if never overheated. I suggest this engine be completely disassembled and inspected if you plan to keep it. You will find wear to more to it especially the cam shaft, lifters, rocker arm as so on. for the oil never lubricated the engine enough to save this engine
Try cleaning your engine with an engine flush such as AMSOIL engine flush and then draining your oil once the flush is complete. It will clean the interior of the engine and drain out the contaminants. Once this has been perfomed replace the old oil with completely synthetic AMSOIL or Mobil 1. These oils are know for there ability to clean an engine and to reduce the chances of sludge formation in toyota engines. This is a good place to start before you go spending thousands on a new engine!!
the best type of oil for a diesel engine is mobil 1 , and it should be at least 10w40 if not 20w50, I'd call a dealer and ask about the weight. They can also tell you how much oil it will hold, or you can just add one quart at a time until you get it full on the dip stick, I'd say no more that 4-6 quarts total, but I do know that diesel's usually take alittle more that a standard gas engine.
