larryp Posted November 20, 2006 Share Posted November 20, 2006 Replaced timing belt, idler pulleys, and water pump this weekend. Boy what a job. When the magic moment came to start her up, i held my breath and she started just fine :D but... there was a loud tapping coming from the passenger side distributor cover. Took it for a spin of about a mile and the tapping disappeared. Running smooth as a clock. This morning when i started it up, same thing. Drove it to work and within 2-3 miles the tapping disappeared. Definately coming from the pass. side distributor area. Other than that it's very smooth and quiet. Car has 212K. Any ideas?
