I would tend to agree with Mo, with your luck this past week Oliver, another pile of bills is the last thing you need ! My '93 190e has the same knocking cum tapping from the engine and has done for the past 70000 kms. At first, about a week after I first bought the car, I was mortified and had visions of an engine rebuild on the driveway. I took it to the local 'experts' who told me not to worry, it was the hydraulic tappets filling with oil. It will still do it occasionally and the engine has come to no harm as a result of the tapping. If you can live it, I certainly would if I were you, providing you can satisfy yourself it is in fact the tappets !
