1984 Porsche 944 Motor noise

Randomly started making a loud noise last night just out of the blue. Ill attach some videos of it. Cant really tell where the noise is coming from though. Theres a oil leak towards the bottom of the black hosing thats connected to the distributor. (Dont know to much about these cars lol). Any ideas?

remove the alternator belt and then remove the two outer belt covers (7 bolts on top cover, 4 bolts on lower cover), it sounds like one of your belt idlers has died, or your balance shaft belt is very loose and banging the cover.

Sounds painful...
Please follow V2's suggestion and inspect behind the timing belt covers. Also (while you're in there), check the water pump for seized/trashed bearings. Good luck!

I was fortunate enough to have thought to take the timing belt covers off the 88S I picked up a while back when firing it up the first time. The PO told me the waterpump was going out. It fired it up and the timing belt started smoking after a few seconds. Waterpump has seized. So from then on, any time I plan on firing up a newly acquired 944's, those covers are coming off beforehand to spot any potential valve killing mishaps.
