Hello, if the noise appears to be coming from the engine, I would suspect either an issue with a camshaft phaser or timing chain/guide making a noise under a load. You would have to isolate the noise with a stethescope or chassis ears to be certain. The timing chain can stretch over time or a portion of the chain guide could be falling apart. Or issue with the camshaft phaser/valvetrain. These are common noise issues with the engine. Long as base engine oil pressure is ok, if it is low, you may have a crankshaft main bearing noise under a load. The rear bearing cap is a common wear item as well with the thrust washer being part of it and wearing down over time
