These engines are know for valve train problems, could be one or more hydraulic adjusters, or (knock on wood it’s not)an oil pressure or supply problem.

If it's coming from inside the engine, it's probably a sticking lifter causing valve clatter. If outside, it's probably a defective pulley on the serpentine belt.
