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?

sonny u need to change ur cambelt asap needs to be done every 30 K miles on 16v engines.

Wheres the tapping comming from? Is there any noise commin from your water pump?

Also check timing as....If the timing is out it can starve the tappets of oil and make a nasty noise.

jst a few ideas a logn shot but worth a mention

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?
