KA KA sounds like a lawn mower

Long story short I had some head work done(mostly removal of a broken stud). After I put it back together it sounds like a lawn mower and is loud as fuck. I took it apart three times to try again but got the same results.

When it starts it revs up then sputters out. It will only keep going on it's own for about a minute and like I said, it is substantially louder than normal.

What do you guys think the problem is?

when you removed the head did you get it re-surfaced? with a new head gasket? Intake/ Exhaust?

It's def not the oil. I took it to a mechanic to get the timing set, all they said besides the timing being of was that the intake gasket was bad. I guess that would contribute to the sound I was getting.

I update when I get the car or more info.

It turns out the problem was stacked intake gaskets. The gasket that joins the two sections of the intake was not properly scraped before a new one went down.

That will teach me to let others help on critical parts of my car.
