Mitchell, I have extactly the same problem. I just had the car in for service where I asked them to check it out, and their response was that these cars just have very loud engines. The high compression of the Blue Efficiency engines makes them comparable to diesel engines, and as such they are loud. While I am not sure that I buy that answer, I don't feel that valve tap or chatter is normal in any engine. Have you found out anything further?Report it
