You need a broom handle.
Then while the engine is running, be careful, and don't let the handle hit a fan, or moving belt.
Then with one end of the broom handle on the part you want to "hear" make a fist on the other end and hold your ear next to your fist.
It's a cheap stethoscope, and it works very well. Just don't freak out when you can hear every noise and bearing etc. (You can move the handle down your block, and hear all kinds of things going on. Or listen to your alternator, or compressor, or PS pump etc. Water pumps are noisy, cam covers are noisy, valve covers are noisy, but if you have a click, you can move the handle around, and listen to the exact area the noise comes from, and pretty much narrow it down to that part. (or the part under the handle anyway.)
Good luck, and have fun. (They do sell automotive stethoscopes, they are anywhere from 10.00 to 100.00 and do about the same thing, but you can't sweep the floor with them later.) :)
