2008 Honda Accord EX-L 6 Cyl 3.50L


The valves were adjusted today. The mechanic said most of the valves were loose so he adjusted to spec.

The tapping noise is still there at idle and gets really loud over 2500 rpm. What is wrong? The car has 89,000 miles and never any trouble before.
no warning lights came on.

One other thing it could be....is not enough oil. Honda has a tendency to ship cars from the factory with just enough oil to start the motor (to see if they run). Usually it's not enough oil for the motor. I see this a lot when I have a Honda to PDI. Check the oil level make sure you're good.
