    your sure its from engine . if you are then first check oil level. and check your fan blades and belt. the tappits ha , i think someone pulled your leg never heard of tappits. keep me post ed on the oil level and how the fan checks out. it could be a few other things also. does it make the noise when your idleing ?

Tapping noise vauxhall astra club 03

More information would have been helpful...
Engine, gearbox, suspension???

The sort of tapping noise the smaller Vauxhalls are famous for are engine camshaft-related. If the noise tends to fade as the rpm is slowly raised it probably isn't really expensive or urgent yet.

If the noise becomes harsher (not necessarily louder) and more defined as the speed is increased then it is time to take it to the car surgeon for a second opinion, similarly if the noise is load-dependent.

Tapping noise like a bad lifter Replaced lifters, it is still tapping One guy said it is GM knock does not effect running of car

one guy is right,it could be a vauxhall tap,even new vauxhall cars do the same.but lets be serious?to calm this and slow down the noise,get the tappeds checked out .it will need the cover removed and with engine running feeler gauges placed between tappeds it will revel one tapped loose and can be fixed within a couple of secnds.adrian,,,
