Some or other moving component was overtightened and has cracked...only you cannot see the crack, only hear it~

that would cause the idle to be up and down and then stall?


I would not drive it another inch. Mine did the same thing and then suddenly everything locked up. I changed the engine (verrrrry expensive) and haven't had time to open the old one up, but I suspect a failed timing chain. The 2.0 LSJ which is what you have does have that issue from time to time. Otherwise its an awesome engine. Fix it before you wreck the engine. They are hard to find if you need another one. Oh, and did I mention expensive?
