*Oil pump* replacement IS required .... Continued attempts to remedy this failure otherwise will result in serious internal engine damage.

Good luck!

Blowing out the oil filter gasket is a bit unusual; it could happen from extreme oil pressure such as from heavy weight oil, or perhaps a faulty check valve in a filter? These are just guesses.

Once you've lost all that oil, though, other damage has likely occurred resulting in the noise you are hearing. This likely from oil starvation.

Hands on analysis is more than needed!
