My opinion, there is definitely something abnormal there. Save yourself a headache. Take it to a shop to diagnose it. Most places by me don't charge very much at all, my guy will even do it for free. Then you'll know how to tackle the problem. And you won't be so stressed.

Sounds like the valves are rattling. Maybe the timing chain jumped cause it is loose

Sounds like valve ticking or atleast the hydraulic lifters. My advice is check the oil level to see where its at. If you need to do an oil change do 5qt of w/e oil u use and the last quart use lucas. See if it starts to go away then it was possibly the lifters sounding.

Not too expensive. I would however do an old mechanic trick. Use a long flat head screwdriver and place it above a valve cover and use the handle side as your stethoscope. Use it to listen closer to pinpoint the sounds. It could for all we know be exhaust leaking. Video was leading into valve tapping and i did not hear anything by the timing cover which is good. Try to pinpoint the sound and keep us updated. Btw its gonna take the lucas maybe a day or 2 to run thru the system its not instantaneous

Another thing i woulf mention is look for an oil leak possible by the valve cover gasket or other places. If your leaking or losing oil it could cause the lifters to be getting dry

Yeah sounded like some stuck lifters or under pressurized. You can get that sound when some lifters become stuck so the valves just kind of slap them as they move up during the firing. Also, low oil can cause them to sound like that because there is not enough oil to keep them pressured. Hope that's all it is. Lifters are pretty cheap and the job isn't too expensive. Timing chain issues would definitely not be too fun :/. I would take it to a mechanic. Inspections are pretty cheap. Spend the little it'll cost to know where you are at. You don't wanna risk it, trust me

In my opinion if you have to fix lifters replace the timing chain and guides as well. And water pump if you have the money. Just try to save on labor doing all at different times.

the sound seems to be coming from the center of the engine..i tried using a long screwdriver to the ear and from the valve covers and I don't really hear anything bad.... do you think it could possibly be my exhaust manifold leaking, I can kinda see them and they look kinda rusty.... how the **** do you actually see them tho haha car is so damn tight

its definitely a ticking but doesn't seem to be coming from the valve covers. I have seen some videos on youtube that seem to sound similar and there sayings its thee exhaust manifold... not sure how that would tick but id like to take a look but I don't know the best way to see it, so tight of an area

A easy way to tell if you have an exhaust leak is get a long pair of pliers and pinch a little pice of paper towel in it and then start running it along were the manifold and block bolt together and if the paper starts moving then you have found your leak

A tensioner can produce a sound similar if its gone bad. Take off the drive belt and run the car for a few to see if the noise is there. If its still there then any accessories are out of the question. Exhaust leak how it was described to test for it is also a very giod way to check. If its more from the center id still say lifters. However one question we all failed to ask is when did it start and what work was done to the car that could have lead up to it. Also maybe a long and i mean a long shot maybe a tob.(throw out bearing if its manual) what work was done and how long ago did this ticking start?

nothing was done for a while and my engine was kinda running loud so I changed my spark plugs and boots but tick is still there, changed my idler pully and that stopped the idler pulley from making noise but now that that idler pully is quiet I can hear the tick more.... yesterday I pulled of the connector for the injectors one at a time to see if the tick went away but didnt
