"Tappety" 2.4 Jtd Brera.

Gooday Gents. My first post and its about my 08 2.4 Brera.Coming up to 18k but since I got it @ 12k its had a "tappety" noise that comes in @ 2000rpm. Can not hear it in car, but going past parked cars,or walls etc with the windows down, it sounds like the old Ford 2 ltr pinto engines when the camshaft case hardening used to fail (showing my age). Believe these engines have hydraulic lifters so would have thought these would be quite running. Like to have more info before I take it in. Thanks in advance for any replies.
