Howdo. Is the tapping dependent on revs, or when the engine is cold, or when cornering? Does your oil light sometimes flicker on when dropping to idle?

Hello and Welcome.

When was the last time you had your car serviced. Not sure what the top end noise is. But your yaw light is more than likely due to a service. If you have had it done was it done in a ralley art approved garage? I know that to drain the yaw flued you need a certain tool (that you wont find down halfords or B+Q). The the yaw flued was changed using the incorrect tool, then it might not be sealed correctly.

For spetialist advise (these guys only touch evo's) five Indigo GT a call. If they don't know, then no one will.

hi , the tapping just comes and goes on low revs, cant hear it above 3000 revs, no sign of the oil light coming on at all, i think i,ll get oil pressure checked with a gauge just to rule out oil pump
