what does it sound like?

here is a video of the knocking noise my engine is making. its a h22a4 type sh.

judging by the noise what do you think went wrong? and is it fixable? how much would it cost to fix? or is it cheaper to put in a new engine?

Nahh. i wouldn't even bother with trying to fix it. that's a hard knock. get a new engine and be done. take the old one apart for fun though.

Sounds like a rod knock and if that's the case, your engine is shot, but it may be something broken in the top end of the valve train. Pop off your valve cover and see if you see anything broken.

Doesn't sound salvageable at all, the block may be toast

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
