sounds like you just lost the bottom end of the engine... not good.

loud hammering noise?

thicker oil is not going to fix the problem, a new engine will. :(

what if you rev it at idle?

I assume you have checked fuel and spark?

i do not have a pressure gauge to check fuel pressure ..is it possble that a crank sensor or cam sensor could have gone bad? or could the coils have broke down under load
