Hi All
I have a Carens 1.8 petrol 2004. It has been in storage for 5 months .prior to that run like a dream no noise or clunks and bangs, I started it up last week and now there is a tapping sound comming from the engine there is no loss of power or any knocking anyone got any ideas what this is and how to sort it. thanks all

I'd be tempted to change the oil - sounds like it's not getting up to the top end well (does the tapping sound like tappets or valvetrain noise)?

Maybe give it a "flush" buy doing a change with some fresh oil and a new filter, then driving a few miles, then changing it again shortly after.
