SR Tapping from engine?!

Hi Guys,


This is a weird one, so my car has developed a tapping noise when just (tiny) a light amount of throttle is being applied - not enough to have any load.

Once you press it a millimeter more(i.e there is even a tiny load on the engine), the tapping goes away?

Can someone point me in the right direction please?? What is going on?

Asks about what his engine is doing.
Doesn't state what engine he owns.

Is Sydney the Florida of AUS?

HA! I'll try to help just because of your awesome comment.


Judging by the topic prefix icon, he has a SR.

Does the sound still occur after the car is warmed up?

How many miles are on the engine? Does it sound like its coming from the head or block?
