Default 04 Ion2 engine light and clunking noise

This is my first time posting here, as I almost never have problems with my Saturn, I've owned it since new and now have 84k on it. (5 speed)
Today, driving on the highway (it was pouring, I mean POURING, I noticed an odd noise when I shifted into 5th at about 40 or 45 MPH. It sounded almost like a motor boat, it was a loud, fast paced, rapid clunking noise. It's very hard to explain but I'm trying my best. I honestly thought the engine was about to blow. But it didn't last more than a few seconds. I accelerated to 60ish, and it sounded perfectly normal! I stopped off to get some gas and when I turned the car back on, the engine light was on. Heading down the street, slowing down to a red light, the sound was back! Only lasted for less than 5 seconds. No oil light, oil level is fine and the oil is new (last week). It doesn't sound like a rod knock or anything. I pulled over and had it towed home (to be safe). When it got home, I started it and it was fine. I took a chance and drove it to auto zone (and back, NO noises or any noticeable changes in performance) and they scanned it. Eight codes, all about both O2 sensors. It seems strange to me.
I'm more of a Volvo guy, so I haven't been lurking around these forums or under the hood of the Ion either.. If anyone could give me some suggestions or feedback, that would be great!
Thanks in advance!

Not sure specifically, but I was told by two different auto zones that they're all about the o2 sensors
