Sorry, never heard anything like that on mine.

Almost sounds like a spark plug wire (old, damaged, insulation cracked) arcing to a piece of metal on the engine. Can't be sure. Open the hood, turn out the lights and see if you can see the spark/arc/light of the electricity jumping from the wire to a nearby piece of metal.

Doesn't really sound like an exhaust pipe leak from a blown out gasket. Not like they sounded on the older V8 and straight 6 GM engines I've heard doing that.

Does it sound like it's on the left, the right or can you not tell due to the location?

Sounds way too loud to be a connecting rod bearing knocking (only heard a couple of those over the years and they were pretty hard to hear unless you had the hood open and were really listening for it.

Good luck with it. Hope it's a minor issue.
