rattling/clicking noise when car idling....

I hear a rattling/clicking noise from the front of my car when it's in idle, anyone have any idea what it could be? I'll try to post a video up later.

Kinda sounded like mine.
But yours is worse.
What's the mileage?
Sounds like you may need a valve adjustment..
Or something is broken.
Run a compression and leakdown test first.

Honestly, check your spark plugs. My buddy just had this same noise on his car, and it ended up that a spark plug was loose and it finally cracked the coil.

We put a helicoil in it, screwed back in the new spark plug/coilpack and all was well.

Almost an identical noise, too.
