Hi guys

The engine on my Nissan Qashqai 1.2 Automatic 1.2 Dig-T Xtronic (Petrol) is tapping on idle as in this video ... 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=seH_cJ_yvMU&feature=youtu.be

Is this normal? 

Also, there seems to be a flappy noise when accelerating from low speed.  

It's got 9k miles on it, recently acquired, ex rental. 

Heeeelp!!!

The tapping sounds normal to me, my 1.2 engine did it.  That got replaced due to the well-known issues, and the new 1.2 engine sounds like that too.

Not sure about the "flappy" noise though, can you describe that in more detail?

The flappy noise happens when accelerating between 2k-2k revs, sounds like the engine has, for want of the better word, flatulence! You could describe it as a low drone or buzz during acceleration. 

Any ideas?
