i do hear that noises. an when i'm not moving or giving the car gas it would go to the red at times never when i'm moving
Expert:  Dan replied 5 years ago.
If you hear those types of noises then you have a problem causing low oil pressure such as a worn oil pump or worn engine...You can try to change oil, put some heavier oil and put in some lucas engine oil stabalizer...If that doesnt help next step is having engine inspected/replaced. let me know if you have questions, thanks.
