Hiya....

A friend of mine has a Mk4 Astra Coupe Bertone, 2.2 Ecofeck. She came to me the otherday after saying her car sounded like a diesel, she took me for a spin and it purrred like a kitten with no noise what so ever.

Now the way I could relate to this, was my own 2.0 16V SRi Cav with the ecofec, that started to make tappet noises. She has been to a garage today (details unknown) and they confirmed that its the hydralic tappets.

Are these prone to rattles, I know nothing about the 2.2 engine, is it pretty much the same as the X20XEV Ecofec as fitted to Cav's? The car is on 45k miles, and did run low on oil at one point.

Any help welcome
