Hi All

So I bought a 03 plate Gen3 2L coupe in October- cars great, but a week after i bought it i changed the oil with 10W-40 semi synthetic. Ever since then it seems tappety, particularly when cold - seems wierd on a 46K miles engine.

So my questions are -

Do people have similar problems with these engines - are they prone to tappet noise ?

Are they hydraulic or normal tappets ? - is it a big deal to adjust them ??

Cheers !
Chris

What oils are you guys using ?

I put 10W-40 in because thats what the hyundai garage recommended - maybe i'll go the next grade up next time, i'm sure it wont kill it....
