bunn man wrote:My question to you is,what type of oil filter are you using.If you are not using an OEM or Puralator,it probably does not have a ant-drain back valve.With out this valve,the oil will leak back out of your filter and into the pan over night.When the engine is first started in the morning,the tapping noise will be there for a few seconds until the oil system is full.Also,one tapping,or ticking noise when the vehicle is running could be the evap purge solinoid.Try to determine where in the engine compartment the noise is coming from and let us know.
