We have had a similar experience where some lifters failed and the thing made one hell of a noise. The other thing could be that some of that gunk broke loose from the EGR and is in the combustion chamber...

One more thing that I have seen is that the windage tray bolts will fall out inside the oil pan and kill the oil pump.
