*Added video* GT 2.0 JTS ticking noise when warmed up...
I've quite recently purchased my first Alfa, a GT 2.0 JTS. I gave her an oil change using 10/60w oil when I noticed she had the wrong sump plug fitted and there was a small leak. Since then I've been getting an annoying ticking coming from the engine, only noticeable when warm. It's only heard when the engine is under load, when she idles it can't be heard at all. So when driving say 30mph and lightly pressing the pedal it sounds like a sewing machine :-(
I've put some Wynns tapet/lifters treatment in her without any success whatsoever. I'm now unsure if it's the tappets at all or something more serious.
Any advice? I could probably post a video here if that'd help...
*I should add that when stationary it seems to start tapping at 1.5K revs and gets louder around 3/4K*
