Loud noise from engine - 2006 VW Passat 2.0T

I was driving my 2006 2.0T Volkswagen Passat today, and all of a sudden there was a loud grinding noise coming from under the hood that got worse as the RPM's increased. Luckily I was close to home, and when I checked the oil level it was below the fill line, but the check engine light wasn't on. The noise sounds like i'm driving without a muffler.
Any idea what this could be?

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.

Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP
