    Has anyone had any experiences with engine flushes on a Cupra , I have Noisey tappets and it’s driving me crazy, I’ve just bought myself 2 forte injector cleaners and 2 lots of petrol treatment bottles , the injector cleaners work very very well. So I am probably going to flush the engine in a few days with the forte brand , the car has been well maintained , regular oil changes but don’t think it ever has been flushed , 90,000 on the car now , just abit cautious as people say it can block up feed lines and so on..

    Does the cam
    Chain make a tapping noise? My car only seems to tap once it’s up
    To temperature it doesn’t do it when it’s cold .. I would think the chain would do it constantly no matter what temperature or would it do it when it’s warm aswell do you know, I took it for a remap and nothing was said about it at all, can’t really be anything major , I just want it sorted before it turns into
    Something worse Lol

    Mine did it when it got warm but mine was seriously bad , worth checking it mate they are known to go and at 90k its likely mine had 81k when i had mine done

    Just a thought , alot of people said it wasnt and my gut told me to get it checked,

    It was constant at operating tempreature when i was holding it steady at a steady throttle 3k and above

    My garage checked it and replaced it and the noise dissappeared
