    Unhappy engine help

    hi guys well i need some help really i have a 55reg 1.7 sri astra the 100ps one which is a bit noisy when i press on the accelerator and car is moving its not that bad when the car is stationery and i rev it. its like a tapping noise of some sort sometimes it goes and i can only hear it when i first put my foot on or take it off the accelerator and when i get to about 3k revs. i have done a oil and filter change on it but no difference i am thinking oil pump but have tried looking on ebay but cant find one. i have heard something about a nut coming lose is this right? hope some one can help i does seem to be getting worse

    oil pump problem is only related to the 1.7 dti's not the cdti's it was fixed for them

    i had the same had my injectors cleaned much better altho the noise is still there its alot quieter now so i just live with it
