Whenever vehicle was cold started, there would be a tapping noise. Have taken vehicle to dealership twice. Had factory representative down & was informed that problem was normal. Also, mechanic tested other vehicles on a cold start, and here was no tapping noise coming from engine. Tapping sound in the engine has increased in loudness and duration on cold starts. The dealer installed a synthetic oil and fram oil filters.
