Plymouth Neon Engine Rattle

EDIT/UPDATE: Apparently, the noise is the water pump. It wasn't displaying any of the classic signs of water pump failure, so that never even occurred to me. But eventually the pump seized and shredded the timing belt. Replaced those bits, and it's back to normal, sounding great (or, as great as a Neon can sound, anyway). Thanks to everyone who replied to this with ideas! Anyone have any idea what this noise might be? This video is documenting an odd rattle that is apparently coming from the bottom-end of the engine. It's a 2L SOHC four cylinder. No idea what's making the noise, but it doesn't seem to affect drivability any, nor does it raise the temperature or muck with the oil pressure.

Putting a can of seafoam down the brake Booster line to seafoam the Neon. I do this about ever 12000 miles, and it really gets a lot of carbon out.





How to replace all engine mounts on dodge neon part1
The middle mount is the hardest to replace it's almost the same like a timing belt replacement on this car... in case with this dodge neon the middle mount bolt broke. the upper mount and lower mount because of this became bad... I couldn't extract the cracked bolt from assembly while in the car it's nearly impossible...
