What would a tapping sound from the engine of 1988 Mazda 626 turbo that has been sitting for 2 months mean?

It COULD be caused from the lifters bleeding down after the enginge has set for 2 months. Lifters make a tapping type of sound. Oil has a tendency to drain away from parts after sitting for a while.. It may even be your bearings were making noise. Bearing make a knocking..hard rapping type of sound. If the noise went away after a short time, it ain't no biggie. If it still makes noise you may want to have a tech inspect it.

Check the engine oil, sometimes when the oil is low the check engine light comes on while sitting still and goes out when you accelarate.
