Sounds like that engine definitely has some unknown internal issues. It's about impossible to pinpoint any sort of diagnosis from a youtube video.

Maybe it blew a spark plug out.

I've figured it out. I have an intake manifold gasket leak. I'm assuming oil and coolant got mixed together and that noise I here is internal for sure.

Assuming? Was pulling the dipstick too much work?

Re: Engine Ticking/Clicking Sign In

So coolant mixed with oil? That will cause bearing issues which lead to rod knock and spun bearings.
