Re: bad motor?

Not good. They must have left the drain plug loose, or possibly didn't remove the old oil filter gasket before installing the new filter.

Gotta fix the leak, fill it up with oil, and see what the engine sounds like. Also drain some oil after running it a while. You may be able to grade the amount of damage done by the size and volume of metallic particles in the oil.

Regardless, damage has been done and you have the right to seek retribution from the shop that did the oil change. I'd want a new engine.
