Engine Shaking after low oil Sign In

My truck had an oil leak and i drove it approx 2 miles before realizing that the oil was almost completely absent on the dipstick. i opend the hood and saw very light white smoke coming from engine.
i shut the engine off and proceeded to to fill it with the oil i had available which was 10w30 ( my truck uses 5w30).

I overfilled the engine with oil, oil was way past the "full" mark on the dip stick but the Odd noise that the engine was making had stopped once the oil was in. i proceed to drive the truck and noticed that is now " chugs" and the engine shakes.

it has also seems to have loss some of its power. i drove it a few more miles to the local quick lube and had the oil changed and the correct type and amount put in. this has not fixed the problem.

no weird noises are notice but the vehicle has lossed some of its power and chugs along. what do i need to do??? could it be the Spark plugs?? My car has 220000 miles. My car has a manual transmission.

Blown engine - concise enough?

If the check engine light is on or flashing, what is the trouble code numbers stored. It might also help to tell us the year, make, model, and engine size.
