Question about Cars & Trucks
Not entirely sure without my head under the bonnet and my trust long snap on screwdriver to try to locate the noise but the moving the camera in and out from the engine hasnt helped ,but i would sugest you ask a local mechanic to have a look as well but this noise sounds like a collapsed hydraulic tappet but it could also be a small end or a broken top piston ring .In all honesty i just cannot place the noise and moving the camera didnt help me a lot as i could then hear other noises like fan belt adjuster

SOURCE: 04 Endeavor rattling noise
I had the same problem! I crawled underneath the car and discovered that a heat shield on the exhaust header pipe was corroded and rattling against the exhaust pipe. (Before the muffler)
I removed the portion and clamps and solved the problem. Give it a try.

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)
