Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tracker
Be sure to check the water pump. With the car running you can take a very long socket extension and place one end on different parts of the valve cover, block, alternator, a/c compressor, etc. and the other end hold to your ear. You may be able to pinpoint where the noise is coming from. This truly is a great way to narrow own a noise like this but....BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO INTERFERE WITH ANY MOVING PARS OR HOT ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS. THINK SAFELY AND IF YOU DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE, TAKE IT TO A PROFESSIONAL. SAFETY FIRST.

If it is sounding kind of diesel ish (loud clacky noises towards the front of the engine) then it is because the oil holes for the timing chain are clogging up and the timing chain tensioner is not able to function correctly. Try engine oil flush and then you may need to do a couple of oil changes with 5W-20 ( go 300 miles ish in between the oil changes)and then fill her up with a synthetic 5W-20 engine oil and she may start to quite it up. I was able to get mine silent like this! Good luck!
