Sounds like two possible things from your vid.. check your manifold gaskets arent leaking. And honestly sounds like rod knocking in engine. start car crawl under front of it put your ear next to oil pan and if it is youll here it.dont touch the oil pan as it will be hot if car has been running..

Sounds like either an exhaust leak or tappet noise. Check that oil is being pumped up from the sump (you can get a peek through the oil filler cap). If you have any doubt that oil is not getting pumped then get it looked at as top end damage will result if it is not getting lubricated.

Does your vehicle have an electric fuel pump? If it does, check to see if the filter is clogged. Also, you can remove the "out" side hose, turn on the ignition to check if it pumps fuel.

Could be a weak valve lifter. You can take a funnel and a section of hose to make a tool to listen to the area around the top of the engine, you may be able to narrow down the location of the noise.

Try cleaning the throttle body around the butterfly. Gas carbon will build up in the throttle body and that will cause one to stall or not run good. I just use starting fluid and screw driver and rag, does a good job. Hope this fixes it, Mitchell.

My brake pedal goes to the floor, and the brakes don't grab at all. i havebled them & it seems to have gotten worse, any suggestions?

Make sure you have good fluid on the resevoir then bleed each wheel out really good.A steady stream should shoot out of the bleeder valve when the brake pedal is pressed. If you have no pressure,then your vacumn diaphram maybe bad or the master cylinder itself.Bleed it at the resevoir also to make sure you have not gotten any trash or water in the system.If you still have no pressure I would suspect the master cylinder.

A noise like that is somewhat serious...It could be from low power steering fluid, low transmission fluid or even the starter remaining engaged. You need to find the source of the noise right away to avoid major damage!!!
