2001 Chevy Malibu 3.1L rod knock

Vehicle had intake manifold gasket replaced, throttle body and IAC cleaned. It then started stall while test driving, followed by starting to make this noise. The day after this video was made, I moved the car into my driveway and it stopped running for good, refusing to turn over. Once I opened it up, found one of the pistons had disintegrated and a chunk of it got wedged in the crank. I also found the head of a valve. My best guess right now is that a valve seat dropped into the cylinder and started to rattle around until it broke the valve, which then busted up the piston. The engine in the car has since been replaced and now runs like a champ.

UPDATE: FIXED** '01 Chevy Malibu - Check Engine (low power, vibrating/shaking)
UPDATE: FIXED** Let me begin by saying that if you have these symptoms it is better to scrap the car or sell it as inoperable. The repairs were extensive and costly, but luckily it was covered under my extended warranty. The following repairs/problems were fixed: 1. rocker arm stripped - New Rocker Arm 2. leaking valves - Valve Job 3. head gasket - Head Gasket Replaced (it wasn't blown...idk why they replaced it) 4. Several seals/gaskets replaced and a rod assembly are also included in the repair report. Sorry if this information is vague, the report is very hard to interpret. Symptoms: 1. Engine lacks power 2. Entire car/engine shakes (especially when at a standstill in "D") 3. Makes a diesel-like noise and sounds like it will die 4. Check Engine light on 5. Possibly leaky muffler? This is a 1999 Chevy Malibu with the 3.1 V6 and the 4-speed auto transmission. It has 58,500 miles on the odometer. ANY HELP GREATLY APPRECIATED! I was thinking it could be the catalytic converter or maybe a cracked distributor cap. I'm taking it to the dealer on Monday on extended warranty, but I've never trusted them and never will.

Overheating problems with Chevy Malibu '01
**Update** Problem solved: After changing the head gasket, it ran almost as good as new and haven't been in need of adding water or coolant since that... (besides filling it up after the repair ;) !) Original text: So I had this problem: The temperature was rising very quickly and the system lost a lot of water. I couldn't find any leakages, but after awhile, there was a steady stream out of the overflow hose. First I was guessing some tube was blocked, but I didn't know what to do.
