Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.
Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.

sounds like the airbox doors are not working these are located behind the dash passengers side, a chiltons manual availible at most parts stores for around $25 will give you diagrams and steps to access this area if u need that help

maybe a dumb question, but have you checked the engine oil level (not trying to be rude) . if you have check the type of oil filter you are putting on. But you mention tapping noises....do they increase slightly as engine rpm increases then dissapear. if so, i would wager that the noise you are hearing would be the hydraulic lifters. the reason you hear them is that they are not getting a sufficient amount of oil pressure...your oil pump might be dead or dying...would go that route.
also, ensure that you are using the correct weight of oil in your vehicle (follow manufactures recommendations)
hope this helps.
