Unhappy Mjet 150 Engine Noise

Hi, my sport is starting to make a tapping or ticking noise under acceleration between 1000 - 2500 rpm, a lot worse when cold. Anybody had this problem before, i think it might be something grave with the engine .

Sounds like it may be the tappets.

I had the same problem with mine and it was as a result of the oil getting slightly low. Although my oil was still within the min' and max' marks on the dip stick it was just above the min' mark and no more.

I topped up the oil and the tapping went away and hasn't come back yet.

Re: Mjet 150 Engine Noise

mine is tappety when cold.

this doesnt bother me because my Stilo 1.2 was the same, and if i understand correctly, the Tjet 1.4 is the same basic motor (i know the thread is about mjets before anyone flames me!). I did 57k on the stilo and it didnt get worse and the engine was mint on it
