    Need Help - What's this sound? (Video)

    My car has had one of its lifters ticking for a while. Starting yesterday, it got much much worse it seems like. Well, if it is in fact a lifter. I checked the oil and I couldn't feel any metal flakes or anything out of the ordinary. However, as I said, this sound it is making is rather loud. I am not sure if I blew a lifter or if it is a rod starting to knock (which I really hope it is not). I pulled over today to record a short video with my phone hoping someone here might have some insight.

    Thanks!

    New club member!! Although I wouldnt say that is a rod bearing definitively. Check the timing belt, make sure its not loose, it could be a collapsed hydrolic tensioner

    Took off the valve cover today. It appears that when the lobes on the front cylinder (intake valves/lifter) go down it immediately makes the sound as I turned the motor over. I talked to a reputable source and he thought it was probably a collapsed lifter. There is still nothing that is sure as of yet, but I will keep everyone posted. Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best but expecting the worst. I appreciate the input.

    Oh no, sorry to hear that man. Did it throw the rod and ruin the block?
