Engine Oil

HI Tsunami -considering the information posted on this thread I suggest you try another garage - as it appears you may just need your tappets adjusted and all the oil changes in the world will not cure the prob.

Hi all,

thanks for your replies. your a very helpful bunch. I asked the garage man and he said that my car is th clio 2 so it definately has hydraulic tappets. is that any help? im not sure what oil was used in the service but i know he used some cheap very stuff (even though he said it wasnt). does that help?
