2000 Mustang gt knocking from driver side

How hard or long of a process would it be to replace a rod or bearing? The knocking is coming directly from under the valve cover. Also, is it hurting the engine when i start it or drive it?

rod bearing means removing the oil pan, which means pretty much pulling the engine or if you have a lift removing most of the underside. Is it a deep knocking or a rapping noise? need to be more specific on the noise. the valve cover holds many parts that can be fixed easy and make a rapping tapping noise. Lifters, rocker arms...valves. Rod bearing would be deep in the engine knocking about the oil pan area. any noise like that can damage an engine, I wouldnt drive it unless you really really have to...just my opinion.

if i had a choice between the 2 i would go towards deep knocking. It sat for a few months and lost oil, which i didnt know so i drove it a little one day then started it up again and thats when the knocking started.

the noise sounds like it is banging on the inside of the valve cover.
