I assumed there was a problem with the idle control valve and unplugged them, battery, and went through what I figured would reset the ecu's settings for the idle control valve.
Well I was right. But now... it cranks up and idles really nasty and has tremendous amounts of smoke. here is a video of the first crank after I reset the idle control stuff.

That's deff a rod knock! My car sounded exactly the same when mine was knocking. I'd deff take that to the shop ASAP
