Engine ticking (not TCT) noise. Valve noise? rod knock?

Heres the video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xLsRG...ature=youtu.be

Been driving slow these past few days, havn't passed about 5k rpm driving to school and back. Yesterday while driving I noticed a ticking noise coming from the engine. I thought it was the TCT, but I just replaced it, and this ticking was consistent with the engine. Any ideas? rod knocking? valves need adjusting?

Im going to go with Gad. my 02 had the same problem and it was my TCT but if that is not it and its making a ticking not a nocking (i cant watch the vid because im at work) valves may be your problem. how is your oil level looking?

Sounds like your valves to me. Id take it in to get them adjusted. I had the same problem before and it only got louder with time till I had it done.

i think i figured out the problem. After i switched to Mobil 1 when I first got the car, I believe the TCT as a whole went bad, so I heard the clicking from the piece inside, fixed that and I still heard the sound. I ordered a replacement TCT thats on its way, so we'll see if im right
