    I would have to say your engine is toast. knocking is usally a sign that you have rod bearing damage. only one quart is not near enough oil and a dry oil filter means your engine wasnt pumping any oil to the bearings or other parts of the engine. Changing the oil wont fix the bearing damage.

    I wonder why the manufacturer's aren't held responsible for putting an expiration date on the box's and bottles? Most consumers haven't got a clue as to how old the oil is sitting on shelf's in stores and in their garage.

    Sorry to hear about the situation.

    Not to be a douche or anything, but I thought things like oil were common sense. It just goes to show that a small mistake can cost you a fortune. :sorry:

    Sorry to hear. You could use a 2005 & up engine. All you'd be using is the long block. All the other parts, sensors and emissions BS would be transfered over.
    Extended warranty ftw

    Its good to be old fart that distrust everybody including himself :D
    I check all the bolts, oil levels for a month after I do the change. I always have a feeling that I screwed up something so I keep rechecking things
