Funny Clicking Noise in Engine

2003 Jeep Liberty Limited Edition
V6 3.7

Video:
https://www.transferbigfiles.com/7b3...pxVu%2bg%3d%3d

It's hard to hear, but when I start the jeep, there is a clicking noise that happens (more so when I press on the gas). I thought it might be the belt (but not really sure).. The video above is a short video (about 20 seconds / 45mb) of the engine-- It's hard to hear the clicking..

Anyone have any idea where I can start? I went to do a diagnostic check at AutoZone but nothing came up (engine light isn't on)..

Should I be worried?

If the sound seems to be coming from the belt area it could be bearings in a pully that have gone bad.

Try removing the belt. Then start it up to determine if its in the accessory drive or the engine.

The transmission makes a clicking sound that's normal, something about some valve opening and closing.
