    Even though the video is poor quality that is what mine sounded like when the fly wheel went.

    Normally a cracked flywheel will make a ting ting ting sound. That sounds like something let go in the engine. Still have any warranty?

    Sounds like your PCV is bad, anyone else notice the vacuum leak/air suck sound from the valve cover when he removed the cover at the end of video? You can also see you have the original valve cover design(https://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/129-e...-4l-turbo.html).

    Did you check the codes to see what codes are stored? that will help diagnose the problem. Pretty sure others have mentioned on here that when the PCV is blocked the motor struggles trying to idle(how yours sounds).

    I'd just take it back to the dealership to fix it. That's what warranties are for

    Yep, spacedout is on it....needs a valve cover for the leaking pcv.
    The vacuum hiss is the clue.

    Sounds all kinds of broken but it is just the computer going insane trying to get the fuel mixture right.

    Basic repair.
