    Tapping noise diesel

    Hi, done a search and it only seems to talk about petrol engines. So here goes, my 2010 79 k miles 2.0 diesel when given a very little rev seems to have a tappet noise coming from the top Of the engine, not lould, at first l presumed exhaust rattle but it isn't. Is this anything to worry about
