I had a big end let go on a 2.2 and the old pressure was low (warning light coming on) at idle, but ok when reved, this got worse until the knocking started, then it was only a couple of hundred miles until it died. When I dropped the sump I had a good 1/4 inch of play in one of the big ends.
I suppose what I'm saying is, if it's got good oil pressure at idle, then it maybe something else like the chain, or a valve seat/tappet.
