Last time i heard a sound like you're describing was in my car. We bought the car with a blown engine.....the kid never put oil in it and melted some metal.

edit: does it sound something like this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=37bbFeBYaDk

the bearing for the piston actually melted and smeared everywhere

I only turned it on for like five seconds, and never revved it up or drove it.
