Ive only had my Corsa for 5 days its a late 2002 model on 52 plate and its only yesterday that ive noticed this "problem", everytime i start the car whether it be from cold or whether it be from sitting for a couple of minutes with the engine off and then starting it.

I start it and straight away i get a tapping or knocking noise from the engine, the only way i can explain it is the noise an old Ford Fiesta makes everytime its started up. It will go away after a couple of seconds and then not do it until i start it again or it will stop if i rev it a little.

Its a 1.2 SXI

mine does it all the time, it just rattles because the valve lifters are a little dry of oil, if it's been sitting for a while.
