147 2.0 Twin Spark Engine Tapping
My 2.0 Twin Spark developed a tapping sound yesterday and i'm a little woried.
The car is a 2005 Selespeed with 87k on the clock. The tapping sounds like it is coming from the top of the engine and begins at 2000 rpm and is present all the way up through the rev range. The tapping BPM also increases as the RPM increase.
History of the car - Bought with 8k on clock in Feb 2006, serviced at correct intervals, oil levels checked weekly, Cam belt, Variator ect last changed at 60k. Been back to main dealer once with selespeed problem at about 10k, relay changed and been sweet ever since.
UPDATE - The tapping sound appears @ 2000rmp in 1st & 2nd gear and around 2500rpm in 3rd & 4th.
It dosnt happen when the engine is cold, but comes in after 10/20 seconds of driving.
It also only appears if the accelorator is pressed, ie if i back off at 4000rpm in 2nd the taping goes away and the engine returns to idle??
