2007 Vue engine knock w/video Sign In

2007 Saturn Vue 2.2 L
260k miles
Here is a video of my engine running. Need help diagnosing the noise. The engine developed an oil leak and ran very low right before the noise started. Any thoughts?

260K and ran low on oil - either are engine killers. Noise is suddenly excessive known low oil is near proof that one is all done with.
You could and should check oil pressure hooked up with a gauge to where sender is on engine it no doubt can't beat 5 PSI a warning should have been on may not work. Just turn key to run see if that one even lights up bet it doesn't,

The warning light did come on right before the noise started. I immediately added oil and it went off. It also lights up when you turn the key on. Probably time for another car though!

OK but two lights used one may just detect one quart low the next means TOO LATE pressure so low can't reach parts takes seconds for extraordinary wear without oil. Filling it back up doesn't heal the damage.
What oil may just be left burns to The noise wasn't just one clunk or knock to me was a lot of items all making noise.
Check away but I'm near sure that engine is now a heavy paper weight

When you are driving a car with 260K on it, it requires more caution and care, not less.

Running it that low on oil would have been very harmful for a car with low mileage but it absolutely fatal for a car with that many miles.
Time to move on.

I happen to have one of those for sale though, an 05 with 95K on it...........LOL
