    Noisy tappetts

    Hi there,

    On these chilly mornings my tappets are quite noisy until my engine gets warm. I've been reading on a few threads that switching to semi-synthetic oil will help? Is this true cos car is going in for a service next week and I can get semi put in. I think its got fully synthetic in a the moment (if thats what vaux put in to a 1.8 Sport Mk4?)

    Vauxhall use 10W40 semi-synthetic oil in the 1.8 16v, also poss ask them to do a engine flush coz this cleans the tappets etc of the oily gunk & old oil residue
