Hi new here so be gentle :) I have just changed the oil in my Adam Jam 1.4 (2014) I used 5w30 Fully Sinthetic oil and a bosh oil filter. Now the level on the dipstick is fine and at the hatched bit. But the car makes a tapping sound, now to me this normally means that the lifters are not getting oiled. Though the level is fine, and the filter is a genuine bosch one. Took out the sump plug and drained all the old oil, (just under 4 liters), installed new oil filter and 4 liters of new oil. Run the car up to temp and the noise is still there, all bit it a little less noticeable, but still annoying. Ideas? Thanks

Did you get an answer to your problem? Genuinely interested to hear how it turned out
Not really, had other issues with the car, and had the engine cleaned and new oil added made it much quiter now, I know vaxuhall engines are notorious for tapping. but its much better after an engine clean
