Stumped on what to do....

Iv had problems with my 94 Mazda B3000 ever since I bought it couple weeks ago, with collapsed lifters on drivers side and a bent push rod within 2 days of driving it, it started out as a knocking and so i took it to the dealer and they told me it was my lifters so they were replaced on drivers side as well as push rods, They say it runs good after they done the work and so I go for a little cruise around town. The truck is making a even worse knocking noise. Sounds like a playing card in a bikes rim. I take it back to the dealer were they were suppose to have fixed the truck and they tell me my crank is loose and has to much play. Its weird tho my truck runs good until about 5 - 10 mins then the noise gets louder and I start to loose almost all my power .

Now I'm only 17 and I'm like broke money wise, from anyone that knows these motors really well what would you say replace the motor or am I better of doing a rebuild?? I'm so lost in what is wrong with my truck and really need it back on the road.

Thanks a lot to who ever can help

I'd take it back to that shop and ask them why it's WORSE after they "fixed" it.
