    Start Up Noise

    2008 with 40k on clock.

    Petrol.

    Really noisy (tappets?) for first couple of minutes when starting up. Much louder than tick you would expect.

    Ideas?

    my 1.8 SRI makes a tapping noise under acceleration when its cold...turns out its the t/belt scuffing the inside of the casing. But after 4k miles there's not a mark on the belt so screw it.

    anyway back to topic...should these Astras not have hydraulic tappets?
    If you can't race it or take it to bed; it's not worth having

    I'll need to get bonnet up and start it cold over weekend and try and gauge where its coming from.

    Always in a rush during the week.
