The statement that the car was making a rattling sound is crucial to this diagnosis. If it ran for a while when it was rattling, there could be a lot more wrong with the engine than an oil pump. You need to come to a preliminary conclusion about whether or not there is extensive damage before replacing the oil pump if that is what it is.
