Help! What is this noise? Is it the famous rod knock?

Hey Guys,

This sound started yesterday…is it the famous rod knock? Is my engine toast?

https://youtube.com/shorts/v-6zkoWuqBE?feature=share

I drove it for about 8-10 miles home after this started.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, that sounds definitely like rod knock .

Advice : Do 'not restart your S65 to avoid further damage !
Please keep us updated about your situation ..

Ouch…that hurts. Just hit 100 k miles on it and was asking around for prices to get RBs done soon…

I maintained it like a baby, 5k mile oil changes, under 3000 rpm till it got heated up and probabbly drove it hard 10 % of the time. I guess somethings are just meant to be..

Thanks anyways. Will get it towed and see what it looks like, will keep you posted..

Just do it, don’t wait. Words cannot express the regret I have right now. I was eventually going to do the RBs but just pushed it and pushed it. Now I think about it there is no reason I should have, I could have done it earlier…

Sorry! Did you ever run an engine oil analysis?
