If it sounds like it is going to come apart.......it probably already HAS.

A professional analysis is needed but it is probably time to be shopping for a new ride.

P.S. Do NOT run the engine before having it looked at or it might actually "come apart" and make matters worse.

I agree with Easy Rider. Just because your oil level is fine does not mean you can’t have low oil pressure. I hate to say this but from your description it sounds like your motor could be toast. If you have the know how you could always dump the engine oil and see if there are any metal fillings present.
