147 engine problem

I have a 2001 2litre lusso 5 door, which had coolant mix with the oil, with catastrophic results. The garage have cleaned it out but now does the following:

Engine runs smoothly but there is a tapping. The garage sort the tapping, but the engine doesn't run smoothly.

The garage are bemused and are scratching their heads. Can anyone give any possible ideas as to what might be causing this.
