My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
It sounds like the engine has been damaged internally with bearing failure possibly due to gunky oil.The gunky oil can come from either lack of oil changes or fluid mixing like a leaking oil cooler or cylinder head gasket leak allowing coolant to enter the oil.
This will need inspected further to pinpoint the cause and then repaired from there.The engine will need examined to see if it can be repaired or if it needs replaced.
Thanks Pete
