    Default Tick, tick!

    Hi there I have recently got the problem with my 3.2v6 signum. The engine is making a ticking noise. Seems to be from top of engine. I searched the forum and could be the tappets or needs oil change. Last oil change was last year but unknown of quality of oil as garage done it. If I change the oil will I need to change it again when I get tappets done or can I keep same oil? I don't want to do the oil then engine. Still ticking then forking out for more oil if tappets need done! Any. Suggestions? Thanks .

    You can keep the oil in when doing the tappet adjustments, there should be no need to drop the oil out.
