    can't say for sure without hands on look. may want to look into getting rebuilt engine as replacement. new engine maybe $7000.00. rebuilt maybe $4000.00. labour for install 15 hr.s.
    best to get hands on inspection. tech. will advise.

    Never get oil changed at a department store. They have no liability to the customers due to their classification as a store and not a service center. Do you have any check engine codes? If so, post them. Hard to say what problem is but, sounds like a rod or piston. Check your oil level and see where that is at.
