the tappet noise could be the timing belt tensioner failing and it may have jumped a tooth hence why its running lumpy its just a possibility to throw at you if it has a belt and not a chain i honestly couldnt say

im with artscot here, im thinking the timing chain may have slipped? possibly a duff tensioner?
