Are you referring to where the exhaust connects to the engine? I'm not super familiar with whats underneath so thats the first thing that comes to mind when you say tailpipe.

Exhaust pipe is from manifold to muffler; tailpipe is aft of the muffler.

Thanks, I have scheduled to have the mounts looked at and quoted only this Friday. No work will be done, but will find out for sure if mounts are bad and what it would cost if I were to have someone do this. My wife has told me no to jacking it up myself given my tendency for clumsy mistakes.

I appreciate the pointers and I will report back.

You cannot jack up a car on an inclined driveway safely. It needs to be flat and level, and you also need jack stands to support the car, once you have it up to the height that you want for working under the car. If you don't heed this advise, and the car falls on you, it will squash you like a bug. Don't make your next ride in your hearse, your last...

I chanced upon the cause today and its fixed now. So the sound was caused by my AC relay switch. It doesnt work and i had previously unplugged it. However the connector had managed to shimmy its way back onto the contact barely, so as the engine shook it intermittently contacted and clicked.

I have a video uploading now, because this is something i couldnt find on youtube, and i hope the video will help someone else diagnose in the future. I will post it later just for posterity

If you listen to your video it is not a steady sound. That sounds more like a exhaust rattle to me. But I'm not.sitting in the car.

If your blower motor is not working. There can be a number of reasons for that. Once again the service Manuel is your best friend to repair it. But simple test help. Unplug the wire on the motor. Use a jumper wire from the plus side of the battery to the terminal. If it runs plug it back in. Then make sure that there is power to the switch. And power going out of the switch. Your test light is your buddy here. You know that the motor is good and the switch is good. Then it's just two relays,a resister pack and a thermal delay from working. One hint is if it doesn't work on the high or low side it's usaly on one end or yhe other of the circuit not in the middle.
