When I bought my car, the engine had a really horible rattle from the top 
end. It was cured by replacing all the cam followers. The only real 
problem I have now is on a "re-heat" of the engine. Its ok first start up 
of the day, but if I go shopping of something like that, I always get a 
bit of a rattle from the top end when the engine is warming up again.
Its a lot better since I put that new Castrol(?) Magnotex(?) oil in it, 
and Im not too worried about it anyway.
