Where did they tow it to? I would inspect the oil level first, and if there are any problems relating to oil level, or oil spilled, or oil overfilled and filling up the crankcase vents, then I would contact the oil change place.

I had it towed to the mechanic that changed my oil. They checked the oil and said it was fine. The car makes the rattling noise when idle and also more when I press the gas.

Since you had it at the mechanic, did you ask them about it? Are you able to isolate what area it is coming from, if you check under the hood while it is running at idle? Belt end, top end, under the engine, etc?
