    If it's drivers side it'll be the timing or balancer shaft chain. Usually they rattle on start-up but generally if it's rattling/tapping at all then it needs replacing

    My vectra has just started ticking big style, it starts after about a mile from cold, nothing to do with the engine though as it ticks at a steady speed.
