I'm sure this has been asked, but this is a struggle finding an actual answer
I've got a 59 plate 1.4 16v with 65k on the clock.
Only just bought from a dealer who assures me this is normal, I know that it isn't.
It taps when warm, it's virtually silent when cold, but when warmed up it really taps.
The oil was changed 2k ago, in October by main dealer.
At the moment it is going back Thursday because the exhaust is blowing after the manifold and the backbox is broken.
Is the exhaust blowing likely to influence this tapping?
I understand they tap a little but this particularly loud.
I'm going to change the oil and filter again for peace of mind, but would like to know the right oil, the dealers from new have said 5w30 in the book, is this right?
Any advice on the tapping would be great.
It'll have the exhaust blow and new backbox Thursday and an oil and filter the weekend but I'm concerned that it's still going to tap quite a bit.
Are there any solutions?
Is it expensive?
All questions, thanks in advance and apologies for the essay.
