Customer Question

Light has come on with message something like, 'Transmission service check'.
This is a new to me 2nd hand car, just bought, so I'm not used to the sound of it, but it seems to be making something like a ticking sound. Although I would expect that to some extent as it's a diesel, but this sounds a little like what I would have called 'the tappets' in an older car. Supposedly the cambelt was replaced just before I bought it.
Any ideas?
