    Water pumps, belt tensioners can cause tapping noises, even a failing alternator can cause the noises too, if you're not sure, best to get it checked out - they don't do it normally though bud.

    is it a fast, light tapping noise that changes speed with the engine speed? if so, its most likely one of the hydraulic tappets, solutions would be to replace all of them, change the oil after using a flushing additive, or turn the stereo up, but im no expert!

    now someones gonna tell me that the diesel engines have push rods lol
