Hello there, as the vehicle ages and goes up in mileage it is not uncommon to hear a tapping noise such as this. Many different things can cause this noise but in all cases the noise is not normal. The most common would be low oil level, low oil pressure, rod bearings, pilot bearing, or the throw out bearing. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, who will be able to diagnose the noise firsthand and perform any repairs required.
