hi, got a little issue ive noticed, when driving the car there is a consistent tapping/ fast ticking sound coming from engine which sort increases with the revs of the car, no other issues with car everything still boosts and works as it should its just an annoying noise.

could this be the head which is the issue and how do i fix it if i can myself?

Top or bottom end ? Prob hard to tell if driving. Dose it do it when standing still if you rev it ? Any difference in oil pressure ? Without scare mongering its either bottom end. Shims or oil starve to the head maybe ?

As johny said above... Also if its a ticking, could well be injector ticking... But all depends on how it sounds?

If its shims it should get louder as it gets warmer .... could also be a gasket leak like manifold etc .......

Mine turned out to be a spun big end bearing on No3 rod which was making the noise
