If the tapping sound changes with RPM it is possible it could be a noisy lifter. When you get an oil change does the sound diminish? Some lifter noise is natural in most engines - excessive noise could be a sign of a failing lifter or restricted oil passageway.

Hi, my golf mk1 1.6 1995 model makes a tapping sound when i drive it but it stops when i idle


Sounds like to me a small exhust leak either
a exhust manafold gasket or exhust flange
gasket or cracked exhust manifold.
Anything else would be enteral meaning
valves need to be set, bad lifter, bad rod bearing,
bad oil pump, or timing chain tensioner,
BUT I would be willing to put my money
on an exhust leak or timing chain tensioner

Clanking noise coming from Allison Transmission on a 2001 Chrevrolet Silverado 8.1 Liter engine


this does sound like theres a loose line tapping the engine/frame,during warm up the engine idles faster which could make it vibrate faster causing the the clanking or tapping noise,if this has started after trans fluid change,then check the lines running from the trani to radiator sometimes the service person might bang into something causing plastic clips that hold the lines to break,try getting under it and have someone start the truck and listen to see where it's coming from also hold the lines & see if the noise stops,the service guy could have unbolted something & never put the bolt back causing the clank ex.line may have a clip holding it thats bolted to the trani pan ?good luck

you are describing an engine miss fire, i think you have a bad spark plug or coil probably a good old fashioned tune up will fix the problem, just remember on a merc. to use factory original parts.

Have you ever had your timing chain replaced? If not, then most likely your timing chain is getting loose and starting to tap on the sides of the housing. This is normal after probably 110-130000 miles, so you may consider this. DOHC engines don't have the lifter tapping problems that pushrod engines have. The reason you only year the timing chain tap at idle and when warm, is the metal expands when it warms up, making the chain slightly longer. At idle, chains and belts "flutter," or shake back and forth. when the engine speeds up, it puts more tension on the chain and it stops.
