The lack of oil pressure has caused damage to the main and con-rod bearings. Wear of the con rod bearings would result in noises when engine is operating and the noise would increase when engine rpm is increased.
As to the oil light indicating low oil pressure, worn main bearings would result in pressure loss and the engine requires rebuilding. If replacing the engine is a cheaper option, that would be recommended.
