again 5w30 with a good oil filter as long as you did not blow it up with all the experements
corolla engines are good for over 200,000 miles and if all engines were built that way i would be out of the engine business.
A word to the wise if it aint broke dont fix it Period!
That engine calls for 5w30 not 10w40 or 5w20 5w30 is really what toyota calls for.. Hope your engine is ok

i agree with that but follow the engine builders guidelines and use what they tell you some people think 5w20 oil is too thin for the ford modular v8 and the new dodge hemi but we found out that 5w20 seems to be the best wear wise and even most of the New Jersey State Troopers are using 5w20 now , they also tried the rest and learned the hard way through blown out oil filters in those engines that the 5w20 is a great oil. Although i have seen some use 5w30 with no problems 5w20 is a great oil as long as it meets sm gf-4 and has the certified starburst symbol..In the old days thicker was better now with modern oils thin is in.

That makes me wonder if it's an oil pump issue.

Bearing, lifter, rod, or injector? Are all of your vacuum lines attached correctly? Did you check the color of your spark plugs and how old are they? Do you have access to a stethoscope to pinpoint the location? Does the 98 have a timing chain or was that the first year for a timing belt?

If your engine has a timing chain, I would say that the timing chain auto-tensioner has gone south.

I'm gonna listen to it agian, but it sounded loudest from underneath the car last time. It does have a timing chain. The spark plugs looked ok to me, just grey. I don't know how long they've been in though.

Also, when I was under the car I could swear it was coming from the manifold area. Could this possibly be an exhaust leak?

I know it's not going to relieve your anxiety, but I'd suggest just riding it out. The noise is the result of something draining down faster than it's supplied with oil (imo). Once the supply feed gets cleaned up (over the various flow division options that it has at that point in the system), it should be back in balance and quiet down.

I'm hoping you're right. I'm planning on riding it out till I'm into the next oil change/auto rx rinse and see what happens.

Here's what a bad timing chain auto-tensioner sounds like in a Honda S2000:
