Tappet sound from... Transmition.. WTF!!!
I was under the impression my hydraulic lifters were stuffed, i went and bought some "lifter stop" see if it would quieten the noise. Till the other day i noticed if i rest my foot on the clutch, like push the clutch in maybe 1cm or so, the tapping sound goes away... i also noticed the tapping sound comes if i leave the car in Neutral and get out of the car, when the clutch is in it doesnt make this sound...
any help, much appreciated.
