    X20XEV Tapping noise

    Hey i realised me car has got a tapping noise on it at the start up and then if i leave it for a bit and tap the throttle when the car is idle the revs drop abit, the noise goes and the car quitens down...

    Could anyone tell me whats going on? Why its tapping untill i press the throttle a little bit after a few seconds with the car sitting there idle?!

    Any help?

    between the block and the manfiold, tho to be honest, youd notice it as it a slightly different tap sound, its a mix between a tap and an exhaust blow!
