WHAT I DO ABOUT A NOISY TAPPET IS SAFE TO DRIVE, GIVE THE CAR HAS HISTORY OF OVERHEATING PROBLEMS

2004 Citroen C2 • 200,000 miles

Hi my sister has a C2 2004 model it has noisy tappet on, the car had overheating problem, after overheating today I cooled down engine and put water in as all the water and coolant and spilled out. On starting the car the cylinders sound good but one tappets is making a nose what should I do next? Tks Shawn Lambie

I would get the cooling system pressure tested for leaks, the tappet is not as important at this stage as is the overheating, if no leaks, check thermostat next.
