So I was on my way to run some errands this morning and as I started the car i heard this loud noise when it was in idle. the noise stopped when I would go above 2000 RPMs. The check engine light came on as well. I have no clue what it could be. I might be a moron for assuming that someone can tell me whats wrong with it by hearing the sound so heres a link to me.com with the sound. I would appreciate and help because I am a poor college student!! [:(]

Sounds like the cam chain tensioner has gone bad.

you can do some searches for CCT (cam chain tensioner) on audizine, quattro world, etc.

How much do you think it will cost?

$500-$1k depends who does the job.
