I see. I was going to say, if it was loping at idle it could have been a bad injector dumping fuel that eventually eroded the prechamber parts. But the nature of the failure and the lack of warning seem to indicate it couldn't have been foreseen. This kind of failure isn't at all typical, even on seriously neglected cars.
