Hello,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
Shantal

Hello some mechanical noise when listening at the filler cap is normal but it should be at a moderate 'ticking' level if its a lot louder than this then I'd suggest the next step is to remove the cam cover to inspect the valve gear and followers for excessive play and damage
