What was the oil level? Knocking noises typically are valves, sounds like the engine ceased. Catastrophic engine failure requires the engine to be replaced. If the starter is engaging and it still wont turn over, try turning the engine manually with a wrench or socket. If it will not spin, new engine is required.
