    Bottom ends going!? knocking noise. Help

    My Engine started making a knocking/grinding noise few weeks ago. after a trip to birmingham.
    I had dipped the oil before going and it was over half. got back and it was bone dry. since then its been knocking and rattling like mad!
    Chatting to my friend whos a mechanic said it sounds like the bottom ends gone!
    But the exhaust is blowing close to the CAT. The old man seem to think that the cats making that noise?!?!?!?!?

    Can anybody help.?

    Cheers.
