Question about 1999 Jaguar XK8
This motor has a DOHC configuration with hydraulic self-adjusting tappets - so a noise on them is practically impossible unless they are worn out to a level that makes the functioning of the motor problematic.
The noise is almost surely coming from one of the distribution chains, the automatic tensioner has failed and the chain is now loose.
you can find an engine repair manual with diagrams - the tensioner will have to be replaced.
