It sounds like the timing chain hitting the cover to me. How many miles?

ooh, thats nice. i dont know what that is for sure but if its on the right side of the car and can be heard muffled inside the engine cover, i would have to agree with what was said above. probably a timing chain problem. hard telling. i definitely would get it checked out. it may be a item on the accesory drive. if you get a chance remove the serp belt and see if it goes away, that will tell you if its internal or external.
