Same thing happened to my 02 rodeo. I was in the middle of the desert of new mexico and heard a knocking sound and so we pulled over and then it wouldn't start. The mechanic there was completely incompetent and said it was my anti theft device, my timing belt, my catalytic converter and my spark plugs, I ended up having to tow to California and it needs a new engine. I had just had an oil change the week before we left on our trip and it registered like I had been driving it with no oil. I am still looking for a used engine for it.

Exactly same thing happened to my 1999 Rodeo 133K miles on it, suddenly started making knocking sound and stopped and i ended up towing the car to mechanic, where they said engine is dead, on of the piston broke and it is making noise. To replace engine it costs around $4000 for 100k used engine. Car worth itself is $2500. is it worth to invest $4000 ?
I noticed one thing this time my old changes signal came 200 miles before... but i ran one or two time after oil change signal came.
Is there a way to repair the engine with out replacing it? Or is it worth to spend on this car?
