Sorry. Fixed it. They're public now.

It's not a car. It's a Jeep.

First video sounds like either a bad valve or wrist pin.
Second sounds like a wrist pin or possible exhaust manifold leak.

How is it running? Is it missing, underpowered, throwing codes, hard starting, or running with less than all its cylinders?

I ask because the noise almost sounds like something superficial to me. For example: a bolt that has loosened on a pulley slapping a cover or other engine part. It's really hard to tell from a video, though.

Either way, I wouldn't run it anymore until it has been diagnosed. No sense in doing more damage and costing more $$. I'd have it towed to your mechanic.

Did you drop the oil and check for metal yet?

Seems to be running ok. Its been sitting for a while but no real problems. Only problems I've had starting it is just because it could use a new battery. Haven't gotten a chance to check the oil yet. My future father in law is my mechanic. A damn good one too. He'll be coming over in the next week or two to look at it some more. This thread is great because it gives us an idea of some things to look at. As soon as we get in there I'll update with what we found. Thank you very much for everyone's help.

It's not a car. It's a Jeep.
