Default '05 4.2L Clicking When Accelerating Only

Just like this video
https://youtu.be/rrewaozoiWg

anyone else have this issue and figure out what it was? I've had a couple people say either a flex plate or Torque converter. The sound only appears when you step on the gas but if you baby it a lot it won't happen too much. After a while the flashing gear symbol with the exclamation point will appear on the dash (Powertrain malfunction).

Justin,
Has the torque converter been replaced under the recall? I would get the code identified to see what the PCM says it detects. The clicking could be a torque converter blade broken loose and hitting the stator, this was the reason for the recall.

Not that I know of i just got it last week at an auction. I'll call a dealership maybe they have the record of whether it was or not.
