    Default vectra 1.9 cdti 120 tappy

    bought a vectra its 2007 120 model

    theres a tapping noise coming from the engine, a friend of mine told me to change the oil filter as they get blocked and could slow the oil from getting around the engine but that didnt cure it.

    i am thinking it could possibly need a new cyliner head.

    i could also try see if the oil pickup is blocked as my next step before i start messing about with the head.

    has any 1 had a simlar problem ??

    can i use it for my trip to france ??

    tapping , it is a diesel ! lol , worth doing an oil service for what it costs but are you sure that all the under bonnet covers are secure ? i run a 120 and bar the usual CDTi clatter theres no other sort of noise , does it drive ok ? smoke at all ?

    Have you checked the valve clearances?

    Valve clearances on the 120 are scheduled to be checked on every 40k service, but most are not, as it's a big job to change the shims, or it could well be an injector tapping. imo the 120 is a noisy engine, mine has a similar tapping and has had for the 7k miles i have owned her.

    Will watch this thread with interest to see others input on this subject.

    No, the 150 has hydraulic lifters, so no need for any adjustments.
