There's a weird noise coming from the engine bay when I turn my truck on. I have an 07 GMC Sierra classic... It sounds like the noise that a bike makes when you put a baseball card in the spokes. It does it at idle and when I press on the accelerator.

Most likely....

Someone has welded a bicycle wheel to your crank pulley along with the King of Spades.....

1. Noisy lifter
2. Exhaust leak

How many miles? Can you post a video?
