22RE ran without oil! 😕

Hi everybody,
so like title says, I ran my yota pickup 22re without oil, but it is freshly rebuilt, just 2K miles ago, so this morning I was on my way to work and a loud knocking started and then got worst to the point the engine died, It started right up and I was able to get out of the freeway, towed it home and found out there was not a drop of oil on the dipstick, I put fresh oil (5w 30) but as I expected the knocking is still there when rev it up, it sounds like on the top end.

Any guidance by your experience and knowledge on where to start to find out what's the issue will be highly appreciated.
Btw, the engine start right up!

Thanks in advance!

It's done, time for another rebuild. Oil changes and checking the dipstick are cheap insurance.
A new engine will burn oil until it seats the rings and you should always change the oil at 500 to 1000 miles after a rebuild anyway.

Akwheeler is right.

Unfortunately, you have no way of knowing the damage caused by running low on oil unless you take the engine completely apart and inspect all parts.

I wish we had better news.....

I completed the rebuilt 3 weeks ago, and then put super tech 5w 30 from Walmart and lucas stabilizer, I really don't know how good or bad that oil is, but today I found out the dipstick showed nothing, it looks like the oil just evaporated, I have no one drop leeks, all gaskets new, pistons, rings, valves, new timing kit, even new front cover.

today I drained the oil I put today, tomorrow I will remove the oil pan and inspect it from underneath, hopefully I just have to change the connecting rod bearing, wish me 🤞

I would wish you luck, but I don't believe in wasting time or mincing words, your cylinder walls are very likely scored, your cam has now eaten it's way into the head, the rockers have scored the cam.
Once there is no oil pressure the damage starts, once you hear the first knocking sound you are in for bad news, once it gets to the point that something very angry wants out there is no turning back. Once you continue driving with angry innards until the engine quits...
you are lucky it didn't just blow a hole in the side of the block.
