either the valves are hammered or the engine lost all oil. any oil in the dipstick? either case.. u need a factory rebuilt engine. it seized.

The noise you heard was probably the timing chain breaking and sliding across the guides. There is a chance the pistons didn't hit the valves but jason is most likely correct unless you know how to replace the head and probably 2 pistons
