Thumbs down 2001 Galant GTZ Making loud, chattering/rattling noise. Please advise.

I have a 2001 Galant GTZ with a 3.0L V6, and last year it started making a really loud noise, and I just bought a house, so I didn't want to mess with it and left it sitting since. Yesterday, I decided it was time to get this car moving and hopefully not just to my other driveway. Well, I read some things, and tried some things, but not sure that it helped at all, so here is a video of the issue I am having. [url="https://youtu.be/-SDUKZHteIc"]2001 Mitsubishi Galant GTZ 3.0L V6 what is this nose? Lifters? Water Pump? Timing Belt?
My car, when in idle, makes this extremely loud noise, almost like a tick, but really really loud. It has had an oil leak, from where, I am not sure, as you can tell in the video, the oil went everywhere, and I could never find where it was leaking from, and my motor is splattered in it.
When I popped the hood yesterday, I checked to oil, and there was almost 3 quarts too much oil in it??? I didn't understand that, so did a complete oil and filter change, it filled the whole 7 quart drain pan, and then added 3 quarts 5w-30, hoping that's what I should use, and a quart of Marvel Mystery Oil, and the noise never did quiet down or go away after running for half-hour or so. When the RPM reaches 2500 or so, the noise seems to quiet some, but doesn't fully go away. Can anyone tell me what this noise is? I bought the car for my son, had it about 6 months before it did this, and haven't really driven it since. I know the battery is dead, and connectors gunked up, but I just want to know what this noise is!!! Any help is appreciated, here is the video again:

Never did get any replies, and haven't taken to the shop, the noise didn't go away, someone on YouTube said bad lifter(s) but not sure

i guess it was the lifters, when i went to change the valve cover gasket i cleaned the lifters and the noise seems to have went away, not sure how long it will last, maybe i should of just replaced the lifters, but i tried to be cheap, lol, anyways i just wanted to verify that i cant hear the " ticking " noise anymore after the valve adjustment and cleaning the lifters.
