The knocking noise of these engines is usually from vacuum pump. Just remove the 6 torx screws from vacuum pump cover with a hot engine and let the oil drain from it overnight. Be careful not to loose any part of vacuum pump - has 2 metal one way valves, one plastic valve and two rubber parts one big seal and a washer. Remember how it was installed and clean those parts with care before assembly. The hose on vacuum pump cover doesn't need to be removed - rub clean cover with cotton cloth. The tractor-like knocking sound was gone on my car!

If knock sensor damage can start the vehicle

The knock sensor was designed as a listening device for the vehicle's engine. It is used to detect engine noises such as detonation, when fuel ignites in an engine's cylinder, as well as adjusts the ignition timing when the vehicle is being driven. When a knock sensor is not working properly, it may cause permanent engine damage. Therefore, there are various symptoms to aid in recognizing a faulty knock sensor.

Oil pressure problems

First thing, check your timing. That should help with the had starting. Depending on how hot you car got when the gasket went out you could have burned your oil or galded a bearing. Take a long screw driver a put one end of it up to the oil pan and the other side to your ear and listen for knocking or rattling in the bottom end. Sounds like you are going to need a complete engine rebuild.
