    I'll throw out a guess and being a 98 I'll say you need an oil pump.
    Hope it didn't eat into your bearings!

    Hopefully you did'nt rev it or idle it too long before you noticed the condition.. If it is the oil pump, what you were possibly hearing is the engine tolerances becomming dry.. Before replacing the pump you may want to pull a main cap or 2 and see if there is still bearing coating on the mains. If you shut it down as you stated then you're prolly alright. Some oil would've still been present on the various bearing surfaces.. But not for long (could be seconds) if/when an oil pump goes..
