You checked with a section of vacuum tubing around all of your exhaust headers, the collector and the gasket?

Sounds like a thrown rod bearing to me. However try if u havent wat sixer said. Tighten or rechexk the tightness of the spark plugs. Is it manual? If so it could be a throw out bearing as well. A little more info would help us more as like what tranny what did u do last when did it start.

Spark plug might just be loose now but don't drive it until you can fix it. Don't want it to blow out and take the threads with it.
