Had timing belt replaced but it was returned with engine noise. Advised by other mechanic it was tappet noise. What damage could happen from driving van with damaged tappets?
have the same problem?

A failed lash adjuster will eventual cause the vale to not open fully or even apply side pressure and wear out a valve guide, I find it hard to understand how a lash adjuster has failed after a timing belt replacement, it could be a coincidence, as the lash adjusters are not touched when replacing a timing belt, I would go get a second opinion on the noise first.
