alright guys i need your help

the other night i was out messing around in town right,
well i got on it and went through 2 gears (2-3), stopped and took off fine at two redlights, then i went and pulled into the gas station for a drink. Well when i came back outside and crunk the truck up it had a god awful knock goin on...
I cant really determine where it is coming from but it doesnt sound good. At first i though i slung a rod but my dad doesnt seem to think so. It smokes white but it still pulled itself to the other side of the parking lot to get out of the way. So under my dads influence i went and changed the fuel filter thinkin it wasnt gettin sufficent amounts of fuel. Well it still does it and now i gotta get it towed to our mechanic in the mornin. Now theres not hardly any oil leaking, if any cant tell if its a previous leak, and it still has oil pressure; thats what makes me start to think i didnt sling a rod. But i was really just wanting to know what yall think it may be. Itll be in the shop tomorrow or tuesday and then ill for sure know.
i should have taken a video to show what god awful racket it makes but i was too worried and pissed off for it to cross my mind.

Re: alright guys i need your help

I would take the valve covers off and check all the push rods and rockers...

Pushrods gets my vote


Does it sound like a plastic bat beating the inside of a plastic 55gal drum really fast?

Re: alright guys i need your help

it does sound like its coming from the passenger side valve cover, if it would happen to be pushrods and rockers how much would you think that is to fix?

Re: alright guys i need your help

well its at our mechanic and he says its the piston hittin the top of the head or somehtin along those lines, and says that its the injectors causin to high of temperature in the combustion chambers, or whatever theyre called, and it melted the piston. I dont wanna believe that because hes sayin i need a new motor now, but first im gonna get him to pull the injectors and check those before anything else or if anything just swap em back to stockers. If you unhook the bad injector will the knock go away, is that how you would determine which one is bad? or how would you go about doin that. Im no expert by any means on the internals of the motor and i just need as much help as possible before i go dumpin money into a new motor..... which is very $$$$$$$$$$$
