406 engine tapping

Post by jambo111 » 27 Apr 2003, 05:58

Hi all , i'm about to buy a '99 406 2.0 estate auto , however it has a tapping noise from the top of the engine. It has done 95,000 miles and appears in good condition with full history. I've been told ( not by the dealer ) that 406's have noisy fuel injectors , but it sounds like the classic tappet noise. Can anyone suggest otherwise?
Or give me a way of diagnosing the problem.
Thanks
Jim
