Hi Guys,

1)My 124 E230 year 1990 has a knocking sound coming from the engine. The sound is only there when the engine is idling. I have shown it my regular mechanic and he says it could be the tappets. He suggested using an oil additive as it can help reduce the sound but i am a little bit sceptical. He also said that opening the cam cover could bend it hence causing me more to replace that. I am not sure if it is ok to keep running the engine with this condition. Please help.

2) Can my engine use a fully syntetic oil? I am currently using a mineral based Shell 20 50. Mine is a black engine.
