Re: little tap sound

First of all you need to give what engine you have, but an oil pressure drop like that is normal, because the engine temp thins the oil out
and the clearances are larger. As for the tap tap tap, My best guess is that you have a lifter going bad,but without hearing it I won't say
for sure.
