If you are careful you can take a long dowel or screw driver and rest it against different parts of the motor and hear where it might be coming from. Just rest it against different parts of the motor like the intake manifold, valve cover, cooling fan housing... and press the other end againstt your ear.

Of course a stethoscope would be better and be careful of moving parts like the fan, belt, compressor...

Should help you narrow it down. It is kind of fun to do and you will be supprized how well you can hear inside the motor.
