Motor started making a bit of noise the other day whenever I was on the gas (sounded like a valve tap). Tried to get it home then it started smoking on the highway and when I pulled over it had blown a hole underneath with oil pouring out.

Not sure if it is worth fixing, or just to trade it in.

What year is it? If it's an older model from 2004 or 2005, and you really like it a lot, then look into how much a new motor would cost you. If it's more recent, look into how much you'd get out of a trade, and go from there. Before I had my Mazda, I had a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix that I blew the motor in. I was offered literally $550. I took that money and put it in savings, and then financed my current 2013 Mazda 3. That car was garbage though, so not really a loss haha
