engine knock :(

alright so my engine just started knocking out of no where one day it was fine next had a loud knock never been low on oil wasnt even off road when it started knocking just doing regular drives back and forth to work then boom ive had one mechanic say its a high end knock and another low end both seem the know what they are talking about should i pay to find out exactly what the knock is (100 bucks!) and then let a mechanic take apart and send it to a machine shop to fix whatever it is that could cost between 700 to 1500 or should i just get another engine?

Need more Info. Does the knock sound louder at higher RPMs, or is it just at idle? Does it do it continuous or just under load? Could it be just normal engine rattle that you are just now hearing?

How many miles do you have on it?? and how many miles have you put on it?? You never know how the po treated it. it sounds very similar to what mine did right before my piston exploded.

Im sorry it took me this long to reply but it just blew a head gasket I'm pretty sure it did anyways lots of white smoke out of the tale pipe, anti freeze all over the engine compartment it had 163 thousand miles on it I think I am going to get a new engine found one from ridell for 2300 with a starter kit on it and 3 year 100 thousand mile warranty and I get a lil back after returning my old engine to them if you know any other company that has a better deal please let me know and don't say Jasper they were 4000 with the same warranty and 900 return after but still a good but more then ridell engines also any other advice would be greatly appreciated thanks again
