Question about Cars & Trucks
I don't enjoy being the bearer of any bad news, and I truly hope that what I think happened didn't happen.
It is completely possible that when the oil change was done, either the pan plug or the oil filter were not screwed on tight. This enabled the oil to leak out of your engine, causing lack of lubrication. When the bottom of your engine stopped being lubricated it caused a spun bearing on crankshaft at piston rod bottom. This is just a guess on my part since you stated oil pressure light and loud noise. I do feel that you should call the place where oil change was done and report this problem to them. DO NOT drive the car, let them come to you to inspect or tow back to there place. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

You can Safely Convert over to Full Synthetic and it will be Just Fine. It will actually be Better for the Higher Mileage Motor. Just make for sure that you Drain all of the Old oil out as Possible Before you refill with the Synthetic. A Little Mix will not Hurt the Motor at all. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Take our oil pan off from under your car and there should be 4 to 5 covers over a rod bearing. wiggle each one of them and find out which one is loose. take that cover off of the one that is wiggling and get the rod bearing out. order a new one from auto zone and replace it. The knocking in your motor can end up where you will need a whole new motor. so get it done before its to late.
