    Tapping Noise

    Wondering if anyone can help me out ...

    I got my car 2 and a half month ago and it was a dream until recently when i ran out of oil ( the phrase ' i'm a n*b ' comes to mind lol ) anyway i stuck 4 litres of 10 - 40 synth in it and considering vauxhall told me it holds 4.5 it was pretty dam low . After that happened it started tapping which wasn't too bad until it started to get really loud .... now it sounds like its coming from the drivers side front arch ( so i'm thinking timing chain or a belt or something ) took it to a few dealers and they said it could either be my tappits ? vauxhall said it could be that or timing chain ( expensive i know ) .... anyone heard this before and have any kind of help that will help me ? the guy at a garage told me to do an oil filter change which i'm doing next week and that might solve it but i'm not convinced it will .

    Any suggestions would be extremely gratefull , thanks
