Grandsons car had flexplate changed out a week or so back due to knock and now problem has reoccurred only worse. His mom had car towed back to shop and was told it is a rod knocking. They had it towed home due to lack of funds. So now its my turn I guess. Engine oil was drained and filter cut open. Nothing really stood out. Changed oil fired it up and sounds like box of rocks. listened with stethoscope and sounds like front third of oil pan but equally loud around starter flexplate cover.? My question is drop tranny (a4) check flexplate and if not pull engine or just drop both thru the bottom and sort it out. Space is limited not to mention 75 miles from here. My plan would be to buy a used engine put it back together and rebuild the old shortblock as time permits if it turns out to be the engine.

Any opinions on this would be welcomed
