Cracked Manifold Noise - Normal?

Just a quick one.

2017 Tipo 1.4 (95)

My Tipo has a really annoying sound when driving, it basically a tap which sounds the same as when youíve got a cracked/leaky manifold, just wondering if anyone has experienced this and if itís normal for this engine?

Obviously itís hard to explain but for instance, when Iím driving along a road that has hedges on both sides, itís really noticeable, normal roads, not so much but I can hear it because Iím listening for it.

Iíve had a good look over the full exhaust and didnít find any problems but itís starting to become really annoying.

I must admit, Iím starting to get a bit worried that itís been ran dry of oil at some point by the previous owner

Cheers.

Previously run dry of oil!!
If it was driven for any distance at all or for more than say a minute or too with the oil light on then noise is likely from
Mechanical damage.

If the oil light wasn't on but no oil visable on dipstick that's bad but not as bad as the above. As the car still had some oil pressure and so circulating oil.

Unless you know the previous owner I guess we will never know.

What are total miles on car?
