Q: Ran out of oil now knocking sound when rev up passed 2500 rpm. on 1990 Volkswagen Vanagon

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Ran out of oil now knocking sound when rev up passed 2500 rpm. Never owned a vw before so do I have to split cases to replace rod bearing or whatever it is and can it be a bent pushrod or something not so extensive?
