Keep or junk 2000 Jeep Cherokee?

i have a couple issues. we bought it used and was told the brakes were bad. the brakes are fine. the knocking noise is not fine though. it now has made a loud pop sound today when i parked and when i start it and shift to drive or anything else it dies and doesn’t do anything. the gauges were all alright to my knowledge and no oil leak that i seen. we are trying to decide if we should just part it out or if its worth fixing. any help is appreciated.

The only way to really make a decision is to have it towed to a shop and spend about 100 to 150 dollars for a diagnostic to find out what it needs.
