I'll make a new video as soon as it's done.

Also, can you link me to a thread that this should go on? I am very new.
I would say this thread is fine. Do you have a mechanic's stethoscope? If not, you should get one. like $4 at harbor freight.

Sounds normal for the most part. If no check engine light (CEL), then its probably just injectors. One thing to be concerned about if there is a chattering coming from the engine is the tumble flaps in the intake manifold (you will get a CEL with this problem). Myself, along with a couple other 100k foci duratecs are having or have had this problem.
