Default mustang 2007 tick/knock noise

I have a horrible noise coming from my car and any help would be appreciated from fellow ford drivers. Checked my intake by spraying some carb cleaner and noticed no change. I also pulled the plugs and injectors one by one to tell if noise altered and the engine just sputters every time I pull one so I have ruled out injectors and spark plugs..Thanks Here is the video I made

Yea, I'm just guessing. It sounds like it's coming from the valve train but it's hard to tell with knocks and ticks sometimes.

I had a 'Vette that took to knocking and I thought the worst, wound up being the nuts or bolts on the flywheel backed off and were tapping on the block.

Good Luck!

If you have a screwdriver long enough, you can try poking around at different places and put your ear to the handle to kind of pin point where the sound is coming from, kind of like a stethoscope.
