1 Answer

You probably have major engine damage, especially to the lower end, crankshaft bearings, most everything. Go back to where you had the oil changed post haste, tell them, then contact the corporate office if it was a chain. They are responsible, will probably deny it, but you probably have a big hassle on your hands, may need a lawyer. Good luck
