NO!. It does mean that a complete diagnosistic workup is required to define your exact problem. At this point in time it could be a number of issues.
I would recommend contacting a private owned shop if you don't already have one and ask that shop to give you a diagnosis only at this time. Once you know what is wrong you will be better prepared to handle the problem.

depending on the noise, you could have lower end noise on the motor, which could mean big issues, if the noise is on top of the motor, you may have a cam issue...or you could have put the wrong fuel in and the car is "pinging" due to incorrect octane usage
