Hi what I would do is systematically go through engine first.check oil level and condition,water level and condition.is there metal in oil and oil filter? If so what color is it.take rocker cover off.has it had a timing chain jump a tooth and bend valves.is the cam chain loose.is it stuck in gear? Can engine be kicked over now it's cold. As you can see there is more things that can go wrong when you think it over.you just need to take your time and eliminate.

Yeh,can be quite costly if you do a thorough rebuild.lots of money,but you will have a fresh engine.On the other hand money may be better spent on upgrade.decisions,decisions.
