Ive got some noisy tappets, well it sounds like an army of pixies in the engines all with little hammers :D

In the old days you used to be able to get some "high Mileage" oil, basically i think it was a bit thicker so it, quietened the engine and plugged gaps etc

ive not seen this for a while though, any body else seen or use it?

If not i think im gonna flush it then use the standard halfrauds stuff...

Did you try and pump the brake pedal hard a few times???? Id have a guess its your vacuum pump and not your tappets (very common). Ive got the same problem myself. :eek:

yeah tried that, no joy. Ive either got sludge up there (hence thinking about the flush) or its **** oil (standard halfrauds diesel brown bottle stuff 10-30 i think)

Its just done 2000 miles in a week with no probs at all...its just the noise at 65mph :( gets better when you get to 75 though.
