tappet wear and bore wear are two entirely different ball games.

What sort of noise are we talking about

How many miles has this car done and has it always been maintained properly (5-30 oil is imperitive)

Hi Jamie thankyou for replying, my car has done 17000 miles full service history just been serviced 2 weeks ago when i bought the car, I'm not sure what oil is in her? the noise i am talking about is a loud ticking noise sounds like Tappetts to me but I'm no mechanic, it is from the engine being cold, it last for about a minute then disappears,? just to let you know the noise started 2-3 days after i had bought the car i took it back to the garage for repair but they are telling it wont get any better or worse I think they are just trying to get out of repairing the car?
