Vauxhall Corsa D Engine ticking / tappety noise

Hi Scotty. Love the show keep it up.

I have a 2013 Vauxhall corsa D in the UK. I notice my engine has a ticking / tappety noise (see video attached). Can you shed any light on what it could be. I change the oil quite often in accordance to what you say and changed it only last week, but have had this noise problem for awhile now. I am wondering if it is anything serious and is there anyway to get rid of if?

Thanks

Emm

Cylinder head intake and exhaust valve lash, on many cars they require adjustment on occasion. On others, they're not adjustable and when they make noise, need parts replaced to quiet down again.

try try try to adjust the valves, cause they are a clattering. Pray it's not more serious, cause if so, major engine work would be needed in the near future
