Wrong.

The water pump is attached to the timing belt. I wouldn't make a tapping noise.

For the third time, where is the noise coming from?

The cam belt wouldn't cause it to run rough.

If it only does it at certain temps then it certaintly isn't.

You want to change your cam belt soon anyway.

Is the noise coming from under the rocker cover?

When was the oil last changed?
