Will we ever know? Oil pressure and knocking does not sound encouraging.

Being a 2006, I wonder if it is the ISL wrist pin issue...

My Engine did that for a bit.. And now.. I need a new one.

I hope you got to the side of the road and my advice is this.

IF you have a roadside assistance policy (Good Sam's or Coachnet or some other insurance) Call for large size tow truck.

New 8.1 Installed 10,000,,,, Repairs generally less expensive.
