It started bogging down and making a weird noise two days ago. Did it, then
stopped practically instantly. Did this twice. Today I parked at a shopping
center, came out, started it and it was making a horrible racket that
sounded like the engine was going to climb through the hood. I stopped it
and started it again several times but the noise didn't go away. A friend
said it might be a blown engine. Another guy said maybe a blown tie rod.
Someone else suggested stuck valve. I'm scared out of my mind. I don't know
anything about cars, have limited funds and the chance of losing my
livelihood looms if this car is indeed dead. Has anyone out there ever
experienced anything like this. Oh, by the way, the car has 144,000 miles
and is on is second engine. (Previous owner replaced the first one)
Please reply! Help!

you probably dropped #4 cylinder's exhaust seat and cashed the combustion
chamber and piston... good luck putting your new engine in... :thumbs:
