    Unhappy Tapping at top of engine

    I have been to a few different garages to see if they know what the tapping noise is coming from the top of my engine, and keep getting different, 1 has said it is a hydralic lifter, and another has said it is an injector stuck open. either way does anyone know what sort of cost i am looking at and are the common or serious faults.

    Vehicle : vectra-c

    Trim : sri

    Engine : cdti

    Year : 2004

    Mileage : 98,000

    Default

    Is is all the time or just when its cold ?, you must bear in mind the cdti does sound dare i say crap!, Ive had dozens of diesels and this does sound the worst!, although Ive heard newer say 08 and they don't sound as bad, weather there was some improvement i don't know.
