Q: Blew engine last fall, how much to fix? on 2003 BMW 330Ci

Moved from madiaon to white lake wisconsin. 2 1/2 hr drive. I got my oil changed at walmart before i left for the long trip. I made it to my desrination. Then i went to a town 30 miles from me and my engine blew 3/4 of the way there. I made it home by going 10-13 mph back home. Nothing froze and afer i turned it off it still starts with a bad clunk. Wha did i break and how much to fix

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.
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.
