I got the same problem it happened at about 125k miles. I knew something was wrong cause I recieved a cel for the intake manifold runner control. It would idle really rough and at times it would just lurch while applying throttle. Towards the end the car would keep shutting off mid-drive. Then finally one day it just started making this awful noise. I knew it was done for then.
