    i'm being serious too - just throwing parts at a car will not fix it. you have to know how to properly diagnose or get a pro to do that part for you. it definitely doesn't sound like a good thing, good luck with it.

    If you changed the head and it's still making that noise then it's in the block. Like Blanco said it's most likely a rod knock.

    If you have the know-how to rebuild it yourself I'd probably do that. If you don't, then finding a good used motor will probably be a cheaper option for you than having a shop rebuild it. Check your local Craigslist for blocks and motors...

    and judging by the way this guy talks/acts-aka not putting the oil cap back on,losing oil and bending valves,,itd be best to take the car to a mechanic,and have it diagnosed..
