I'm not sure wheat's going on my husband said it sounds like its coming from the valves?

I stopped to get gas and the car started to miss. Then it started this bad ratchet sound. We managed to get home but I'm not sure wheat's going on. Any ideas possibly?

Its a ford Taurus station wagon with the flex fuel engine.
