See if you can determine if the noise is coming from the front or rear of the engine. If front I would suspect something to do with the timing chain maybe rubbing on the timing cover. If at the rear of the engine I would suspect something to do with the starter or flexplate (flywheel). Does the noise change with engine RPM? If not check the heater a/c blower motor.
