My 2001 chevy malibu has been knocking for around a yr and I took it to get looked at the other day and they said it was a piston hitting the head and that there was no way of fixing it my? Is what would cause this and is there any way of repairing it

First, how did they determine a piston was hitting the head? It could be a rod or main bearing, cam bearing. Also, it could be caused by carbon build up on the piston that there are cleaners for.
