Hello all,

My 4efte engine In my Glanza started to make a tapping sound the other day, it has progressively for worse. Coolant and oil are fine, no loss in performance. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cheers 

Will

Idle solenoid can cause tapping noise. You could take it out and give it a clean. there is a tutorial on here or TGTT.com somewhere.

Even better, you can simply unplug it and see if the noise goes away. But this sounds worse, I would do a compression test

The coolant sprayed all over the engine bay. There is coolant in the overflow bottle but none in the radiator.

Valvetrain noise is 2 x engine revolution in frequency. 

Hope this helps

Bit  of an update, I have completed a compression test and it's all good. All pulleys are tourqued up.

I took the rocker cover off a few weeks ago to look at the cams but I'm not 100% sure what I'm looking  for or measuring

Update, ive checked the cam clearences and one of the cams tolerance is way to tight. could this be the issue?

Thanks for that, just wondering  why the gap would get closer between the cam and the shim?

It gets closer the more the valve and valve seat wears.

Did you check the clearance when the engine was cold?

So next thing to take off the Cams? Would it be likely to be a shim replacement? 

You don't need to remove the cams to change the shim.

Pressure down on the edge of the bucket and remove the shim

Okay thank you, I'm planning on taking a good luck next weekend, I've got another engine spare so it may come in handy.
