Default 2.3 engine noise

i have a 2004 ford ranger XL, when its running it sounds like a sewing machine. is this because it is a twin cam (DOHC)?

Quick! Look under the hood to see if it is a 2.3 or a Singer

Injectors, tappets, timing chain, post a video clip so we could tell you if it's normal noise or something concerned about.
