It's very likely that you need to replace the fuel pump. Usually, if its that loud either its sucking air (because you're out of gas) or the pump is about to go out.

SOURCE: loud rattling noise coming from the engine

Are you losing power as well? if so it sounds like the camshaft is worn, this can be confirmed with a compression test

1998 VW Passat cranks won't start. fuel pump works,fuel up to fuel rail, spark plugs do fire


Improper fuel/air mixture, possibly plugged up air filter?
You have 2 out of 3 of the needed components for that motor to run, and assuming your timing is correct and you have compression, it could be an air intake issue.

PASSAT WONT START ALL THE TIME. NO CODES


sounds like a Crank Position sensor. It's hitting at random instead of in tune with where the crank is at any given time. So I say "Yep" to your question "Maybe a new crank sensor?" : )
