Hi, i assume your referring to the engine. Could be the hydraulic lifters or wear on the rod bearings meaning there is space between the piston rod and the bearing and when it moves you hear it tapping. Check your oil level !

Hi, you should have the front end inspected, you might have a bad tie rod, ball joint, or sway bar bushing. If you ignore some of these you can wear out your tires real quick.

Tapping noise - oil pump?


Its possible the oil pump is going bad, but I doubt it would make the noise you describe.
Usually a tapping noise is a valve lifter or a piston connecting rod.
And low oil pressure could cause either, as well as dirt blocking one of the oil passages in the engine block.

Lifters problem


my good friend the tap noise you have is not only due to taps failure. Is also coming due to not good oil viscosity and how often you do oil change.My Advice is to do and engine oil flush with a Restore flusher for 40 minutes then drain your old oil drain the old filter and after re-use the old filter with 2 liters of new oil and restart the car and leave it for 10 minutes and then renew oil & filter and use again the Restore friction reducer and every 3000 miles do oil change. If your valves are adjustable do the valve clearance,if not try every 3000 miles to do the same flush way I recommend. It will work unless is a long time working with the tap noise where surely caused damage . Good Luck and let me know with the outcome.

Vw t4 '03 tapping noise


Hi,

Next time it's tapping at idle, press the brake pedal hard several times. If it stops tapping then gradually returns then it is a noisy vacuum pump.

It can go on like that or years (if you can put up with the tapping that is!) if you start to loose servo assistance while manovering then it's time to change the pump.

Hope that helps.

Check Utube for lifter tap, valve tap, and rod bearing noise. If you pull each spark plug one at a time, plugging it back in after each one, the tapping will go away if it's a rod bearing. At any rate, on your next oil change add some valve-medic or similar additive for valve noise. Make sure you follow direction or you will get massive lifter tap if you pour it into a cold engine.
