Strange click-tapping noise when engine gets warm
I'm experiencing a very strange situation of my car once the engine temp rises and engine gets warm. Once the engine gets warm I can hear a strange noise coming from it (I don't know how to describe it), it sounds like a kind of clicking & tapping noise mixed together???? Which side of the engine I don't know but it comes from there...and is more audible from inside the cabin.
It is strange because it starts perfect in the morning and no noise, the car pulls like normal.
I haven't noticed any strange thing apart this noise and the fact that if I accelerate hard there is some smoke coming out the exhaust, but i think this is normal as this engines run a bit smokie (all my engines used to be like that), but as long as the oil level doesn't go down it must be fine. The engine keeps the oil in very good shape.
What is wrong there, I need some advice as I have the impression it's getting worse every day passes...
OOO SH*T...THIS IS MY 4TH ONE
