top end noise

My top end has a loud top end tapping noise. Sounds like it's in the valvetrain.If i press on the plastic cover the noise gets better, probably just dampining the noise. Are there any common problems or can anyone offer advise, i have not removed the cover yet. The car has been sitting for a week. 97 e300d

Could it possibly be the injector? Can it make noise without causing a driveability issue? Seems somewhat quiter as it warms up but does not go away. seems to go away past 2000 rpm

More than likely..

a cam follower (lifter). Search the archives and you will find much info that will help you. Type in lifter, cam follower, ticking noise, etc.
