Unhappy

How is the oil level on it and when was the last time it was changed?

if there's no money and you need transportation sell something to get cash and get the car fixed. that way you don't have to borrow any money

Pretty sure you have the exact same problem.. Except sounds like yours is also misfiring. Mine was actually firing fine and all so no lights came on the dash. But I bet much longer and it would have really damaged something and started misfiring.

did it shut off the same day he added the 2Qts of Oil?

I traded my subaru for the Versa, it was a Legacy L 2.2 and it had over 200,000 miles on and the tranny needed to be rebuilt and I didn't want to spend 3,000.00 on a car that was falling apart, plus it had electrical problems.

I bought it because I'm a cheapskate and didn't want to spend too much, but I think I learned my lesson and realized that if I go too cheap, it will cost more in the long run.

what were those lights on the dash?

it is knocking pretty bad unless the timing chain came off track or something
I hear lifters and valves knocking louder than normal

Here's mine, and this is what it sounds like when is cold, that's why the idle sounds higher but after it warms up, it stills sounds about the same lol

What oil have you been using? If its cheap stuff, sludge can build up and restrict flow through the oil pump making less oil feed the valvetrain. It sounds like valve knock on idle and piston slap/rod knock when you gas it.
