Default Loud engine noise and throttle sputter

Hey guys, same 01 2.4L N/A 180k miles I posted about yesterday. Noe she has some odd engine issues. A really loud noise is coming from the the engine. It's a little grinding, mostly whirling and it gets louder when I push on the throttle. The throttle is also skipping. It will autonomously rev way up for a short amount of time, think 2.5-3k rpm, then fall again. This happened 5 or 6 times this morning on my 3 minute drive to class. The only things I have thought it could be is some bad bearing somewhere and a bad TPS, but my engine light is not on. The old girl keeps falling apart on me...

Noise is very subjective and your grinding/whirling could be anything from an internal malfunction to just something rubbing or vibrating. Need someone close by you to objectively look and listen to the engine to figure out what's wrong.

If the revving is while your in neutral or with the clutch in, it's a built in rev limiter that stops you from hurting the engine.
