I agree, that does NOT sound like rod knock to me. That sounds like a busted rocker. Take the valve covers off first and check them. It's a lot easier than fixing broken connecting rods.

The engine probably shakes and the SES light is on because if a rocker is broken that means one of your valves isn't opening... so you probably have a cylinder that isn't firing and/or is misfiring. I definitely wouldn't drive it until you get it fixed.
