When I started my 1996 Ford Ka 1.3 Endura e last morning the engine made a strange ticking noise. The noise appeared when I started the engine, during low gears and when I depressed the clutch in high gears or when I took my foot off the throttle. Several people on the internet indicated it could be one of the tappets, but the sound doesn't get any faster/louder when I accellerate and it sounds nothing like the sound in this video
I'm not too familiar with car mechanics so I'm hoping one of you is able to provide me with a possible explanation or fix for the problem, as I don't want to waste a couple hundred of euros on a garage if it's something I can fix myself with a spanner.
Thanks in advance!
