Recently had a significant coolant leak from a housing. But the car has made a clicking noise when running...cant hear it when driving so I don't think it's the tappets.
I've only had the car a week and have owned one previously. I have no history of the timing belt being changed so could this be the reason for the clicking. Also, I've heard that it's worth having an oil change and possibly a water pump change at the same time on this.model.
It has a good service history but no invoices for some works. It's just passed it's MOT last week also. Has 81760 on the clock.

Was the noise there before the coolant leak ? Have you checked the previous MOTs to verify mileage ?
