Hi - rather than just "throw parts at it," it is a better investment to determine the real problem, and only buy the parts you need. I would recommend having your oil and fluids inspected by a professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, to diagnose this problem, get an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
