If you ran the engine out of oil then you may be hearing rod knock.

So if I change the weight of the oil would it eventually stop and I thought rod noise is real loud with the service soon or check engine light on

Do you hear rod noise or tappet noise? Heavy oil will not fix either problem. If you ran the engine out of oil you damaged something!
