Loud tappet noise in renault clio engine

I own a renault clio 1.4 Rt 1997 with 35k miles on the clock.the engine runs very well, almost feels like new apart from the exceptionally loud tappet noise.this is always the same,and if the car is run hard it will get worse and the engine lights on the dash flicker as if about to stall.i wondered if there would be anything a garage could do to solve this problem, or indeed anything i could do myself with minimal experiance in cars. thanks.

Can you set valve clearances on a 1997 clio 1.2 engine.my engine sounds as if the tappets are noisey.


The tappet clearence should be in the owners handbook but it's a bit early a tappet noise from the engine (2006) ! Check oil level and change if it's overdue a service is definately worth a look ! Good luck

L reg, petrol, 3 door renault clio. n it squeals like a pig.


That is your trust bearing in your clutch assembly, its a cheap part but involves basically a clutch change to sort out, you can either live with it till the clutch fails or depending on how long its been since it was last changed, bite the bullet and get a whole new clutch fitted.
