this could be your oil cooler check your water and see if there is any traces of oil in the water even if there aren't I cant see it being anything else because of what you have already had replaced,Ihope this is of some help to you.

It sounds like the car was ran out of oil.The engine bearings and crankshaft journal are probably scarred.The noise you are hearing is more than likely a piston rod slapping around about to break loose from the crankshaft.So,yes the engine is toast...Sorry..Good Luck!!!

Have you replaced the timing belt? if not i would highly recommend doing so. these cars need to have the timing belt replaced before it breaks otherwise it can and will cause major engine damage.

The car smokes only when oil or water gets in the cylinder. In your case the gasket blew outwards and since always the water circuit is the closest one of the exterior of the engine this is why you got oil in the antifreeze and not the other way around. The fracture in the gasket has been sealed by the gunk in the oil so running Bar's Leaks Liquid Copper Block Seal not only hasn't helped ( it couldn't have gone in the fault of the head gasket since it was already clogged and the pressure in the oil system is way higher than that in the cooling) but it has generated other problems in the water pump - it has clogged the water channels and messed up the fins on the pump itself.
Sorry, the pump must be replaced and the entire circuit flushed thoroughly multiple times to remove all the traces of that seal.
The Blue Devil Head Gasket Sealant is just another sealant that has very little to do with your problem . And even that one will be just a very temporary fix. Use it if you don't want to keep the car for long and don't want to fork the big bucks for replacing the gasket.
