Now the colder weather is here again my tappets are making more noise on start up then during summer-it only does it for a few minutes so will it actually ever do any harm or is it more just annoying to hear on start up.
If i was to change them how hard a job is it-i know on ebay u can buy the tappets for approx £60-i did this job once on a mk3 escort and im sure it was an easy job that just needed a new rocker cover gasket,and the bolts which held the rockers on-so is it just an hours or so job on a mk2 mondeo 1.8?
