Engine oil does not cause a engine knock. It is caused by pre-ignition, which can have many causes, including the wrong grade of fuel octane.

What is wrong with 2000 Camry which now has knocking at 86000 miles wo spark plugs it is free of knocking and has equil compression wo visual damage to pistons walls motor dot Camry at yahoo dot com?

A knocking engine can mean any of a number of things, main bearings, rod bearings, wrist pinsw or piston slap. If it's just piston slap, you probably have a lot of miles left in the engine. Anything else means trouble. Does it have an oil pressure switch or an oil pressure gauge? If you have a gauge watch the oil pressure. If it's up at an idle you probably have piston slap or wrist pins. If the oil pressure drops way down it's probably rods or mains. If the knocking goes away after a few seconds it's probably piston slap.

Why is your 99 jeep grand Cherokee engine knocking It stops knocking when I disconnect 6 injector connector.?

"knocking" is very broad so just a wild guess here. I think the reason the knocking stops when you disconnect the number 6 injector is; you are creating a "floating piston". In other words, this piston and cylinder are no longer producing power, they are no longer under a load, and they are no longer compressing the fuel that you have prevented from being injected into the cylinder. So, if you have something wrong with that cylinder, such as a bad piston, piston pin, connecting rod, rod bearing, etc., you have relieved the pressure which will quiet the knock. Again, just a wild guess!
