Noticed lately my truck has been "knocking" the last 3 days. Now the "check engine soon" light just came on and engine seems to be knocking a little more. What could it be? Also, I need to make a 66 mile round trip and will it be ok to drive it this long before getting it looked at? Thanks.

Before driving it, I would recommend having the computer scanned to identify what is causing the knock. My concern is most knocks deal with bearing problems. If that is the case, you will do more damage. Is the oil full? Also, most nationally recognized parts stores will scan the computer for free. Have that done and let me know what you find.
