It may be a bad belt /tensioner recommended replacement is 60,000 mi. But things like this are better diagnosed locally

From what I hear and it's not live it sounds like a valve train noise or something similar as long as engine has decent oil pressure and isn't overheating drive it. Don't put a lot of things in to engine noises as they can get noisier as it ages. Besides there isno way for me to test this with different things to try to eliminate the noise.

I will just add one thing to this, you may have a problem with a lash adjuster, it may be affected with carbon build up, you can try to do an engine flush and change the oil and filter, use a knowm brand of flush and follow the instructions on the container, if in doubt do as the previous tech recommended, go get it looked at first hand by a qualified mechanic first.
