Long story short 02 WRX VF39 swap with 99k miles. Started with a coolant leak at the throttle body and then the car died and wouldn't start. Coolant leak was fixed. The first sound I'm unsure about is the tapping. It sounded to me like a bad tensioner so I did my 100k maintenance and replaced my waterpump and timing belt/tensioner. I also replaced my fuel filter. Put the car back together and it starts up now but makes two unknown noises, the tapping is still there and a screeching sound is now present. That's the second sound - screeching. The screeching wasn't there before the car died but is very loud now. This is a link to a video I posted on YouTube from my phone to help decipher my sounds and locate my problem(s)
that's what I could think of but I will respond to any questions asap. Thanks in advance!
