Default Strange noise from my 75 engine at low rpm (<=1000)

once again I'd like to ask for your kind help.

As I mentioned in other posts I own a 2000cc Diesel 75 of 1999.
The problem I'm experiencing started suddenly today: an abnormal and loud sound (like a tak-tak-tak...) coming from the engine at low rpm (below 1000rpm).
Did any of you experienced anything similar? What was the problem in your case? My garage is about 15km away; in principle I could drive the car there, though I suppose this would be risky and better avoided, am I correct?
I look forward to your replies, for which I thank you in advance
Kind regards,

P.S. My apologies to the administrator -- I believe I've erroneously posted this message to the wrong forum a few hours ago...

Hi Enzo, does the noise dissapear when you increase the revs? If so I suspect the crank pulley to be the cause.
Lest we forget..
