Angry Bent Rod?

1999 Pontiac Sunfire 2.4 liter twin cam 4 cyl. engine sounds like a machine gun. Noticed noise on parkway and was 2 qaurts of oil low. No Hole in oil pan, just a lot of noise!!! Can anyone help? Should I start to tear down the engine?
Thanks

Put some more oil in it and see if that stops it. Then if it doesnt, tear down the engine before things get worse.

Well then it looks like its time to tear it down and check those rods. There might be a little man in there with a hammer trying to get out you know

No oil leaks and ran 40 mph, til I got home, didn't dare go higher. So I guess I will tear it down.
