while car is idling there is a sort of like tapping noise coming from the engine and when revving or accelerating you can hear the tapping noise gets louder at times and sometimes you do not hear anything. In other words - its like the engine runs rough while car is idling. shouldn't the car idle more quietly or is it the way it should sound.

Shouldn't make unusual tapping noises,
I'd look at the camshaft/tappits.

Thanks to all for your speedy reply - much appreciated!!

I previously owned a Toyota 1.6 GLS (RXI) shape and the mechanical issues were quite understandable. As with the Peugeot, when it comes to detailed mechanical issues - I'm really quite clueless. Is this a huge and expensive problem to fix? Thanks in advance.

Little point in borrowing trouble,
Get it looked/listened too before worrying about bills.
