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.

Hpno & Jaz Adventures! Changing the top right motor mount on a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT
This is my first auto repair video. I'm not a professional videographer nor
a mechanic. Under no circumstance am I saying I am a professional. We
usually do things ourselves to save money and because we know how to do
them, but when we don't we do see a professional mechanic. This video does
not replace in any way the advice of a professional mechanic. You might
experience more car shaking after replacing a motor mount, specially if you
only replace one and you have other bad motor mounts. Mine were replaced
about 3 1/2 years ago by the dealer. They should not wear that quick, but I
drive my car a lot and I drive it hard so that's why I had to replace them
again. Plus when I bought my car it had already been hit apparently (my
mechanic said so) and the frame of the car in one side is pushed in which
might cause more vibration and more wear and tear. I purchased this motor
mount from Advanced Auto Parts and it cost me $37.99 plus tax so around 41
bucks. I know at Auto Zone is the same price at least in my area and you
can find them at ebay or another store for cheaper. If you are going to get
it replaced at a professional, I do advice for you to ask if you can buy
your own part. I know when I used to go to Tire Kingdom I would always buy
my part and just pay for labor because they double the prices on parts now
that I moved, I don't have the same luck. Some places will not accept that.
But if you know where they buy their parts which is usually an auto part
store near them, just buy it yourself. Get a quote and the parts you need
and then give it to them to use. Price might vary in your state. The other
motor mounts will be checked and replaced as well at a later time. If I do
a video of the replacement I will post it. I believe that one can learn
about cars and learn enough to do your own repairs. But nothing compares
with professional advice.
