this vehicles engine does not have rocker arms, cams sits atop the valves which have lifter shims. If you had a bent valve, car will run rough or encounter misfires. If the knocking is coming from the head, Possible valve lifter shims worn, or severe camshaft lobe wear. I would recommend bringing the car to a repair shop to have it checked. Hopefully this helps!!

one or both of two things can cause this
low oil pressure to lifters
or there clearance is not adjusted correctly
clearance should be adjusted with engine hot and idle'ing using a go /no go shim of proper thickness
