dear friend-i do not think the oil comes from the hear gasket but rather from the distributor,make sure that the oil is not running down onto the head gasket and the shows as a oil leak from the gasket.

It's possible, but if you have bad rod bearings, you probably have to get the crank re-done. In other words, if it's knocking, your problem is bearings and crank, not just bearings.

Testimonial: "Thanks Will inspect to see what type of damage there is to the engine. Hope it's just the bearings. Thanks for the reply"
I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX as well (158k miles). At first it would overheat when idling, and then my heater started working sporadically. It would blow cold air when idling, then hot air when driving. It would also cause my car to overheat. I would turn the temp to cold and the car temp would reduce. My coolant level would also drop to next to nothing every few months, but I never saw any pooling, or leaking from the radiator. I changed the water pump, thermostat, all the belts since I was there anyway, the water sensor and the radiator cap. After all this it was asymptomatic for 4 days, then the problems persisted. I took it to the mechanic and it was diagnosed with a blown head gasket. The test for it is fairly simple and runs ~$45 (1/2hr labor charge). I would try that before changing out more parts when you don’t need to.
