Sorry, but "a knock" is just too vague. A 2009 should still solid. Unless it is really cheap and you have time (and money) to fix it, I would avoid.If I were a gambler I might put money on a blocked oil feed in the sump and bearing damage, but that would not necessarily go with the 'no start'. Might be worth checking the lube oil is not diluted by diesel (overfull sump would be an indicator.)
