SOURCE: tappet noise

Sounds like worn lifter/cam lobe,quite normal when engine gets a few mles on it.Lifter is finding it hard to fill the extra clearance created by wear.What sort of oil are you using and is it clean?Wear in an engine will lower your overall oil pressure as well,not generaly enough to worry about but it does contribute to the problem.At idle or when cold is generaly when this happens?

SOURCE: noisey tappets

Don't bother. They are hydraulic and rely on oil pressure to obtain a zero clearance when everything is OK. Your oil system may be sludgy or you may be using the incorrect viscosity oil.

What is tappet settings

Hydraulic tappets are tappets that contain a small hydraulic piston, pressurised by the engine's lubricating oil supply.[5] Although the piston does not move appreciably or frequently, it acts as a hydraulic spring that automatically adjusts the tappet clearance according to the oil pressure. This makes the valve actuation self-adjusting and there is no need to adjust the rockers. Hydraulic tappets depend on a supply of clean oil at the appropriate pressure. When starting a cold engine, with low oil pressure, hydraulic tappets are often noisy for a few seconds, until they position themselves correctly.

Tappets noisey when cold

Check which oil you are using. This can happen with excessive dirt int he tappets if they are hydraulic or if the oil viscosity weight is too high. At one time, Rislone was the answer, but it is not always the best idea with some of the new alloys and aluminum heads and blocks. You may do better with a fully sythetic oil like Castrol Syntech. Also, make sure that your timing is correct.

Vehicle will not start after cambelt and cylinder head refitment

providing all the work is done correctly then it might take a while to start as you need to get the oil into the hydraulic tappets.. then it still might sound noisey untill it has done 10 - 20 miles

2001 Volvo s60 D5 very difficult to shift gear

if you have a hydraulically assisted clutch, check the reservoir. it's located on the firewall in the vicinity of the brake vacuum booster. if it's low/empty, fill it. you may have air in the system which will require bleeding. what is the mileage? you may be due for a clutch. if you google, "hard shifting manual trans" you will gain more insight on the matter.

Tappets making a constant noise

i would suggest asking your mechanic which viscosity(thickness) oil he put back in and check it against the manufacturers recommendation as if it isto thin then it will make your tappets unusally noisey if he has put in the correct oil then i would say that they were quiet because of the old gungy oil and they either need adjusting or if they are hydraulic then the lifters need replacing
