Sounds like the top end then. This could be bad news - the car may have been thrashed or it might just need a good
change as the lifters operate using engine
if it is clean they work better
EDIT - my old Astra had hydraulic lifters and sounded worse than the Meagne when it was cold but once warmed up it ran pretty quiet - did you let the engine warm up fully or was it just cold?
The Vauxhall Cavalier - one of the safest cars you'll bump into
Currently in Bob925's garage:
2015 '65 Vauxhall Astra SRi, and a variety of "lovely" buses
