My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

With the oil light coming on and a ticking noise like this here this can indicate a fault with low engine oil pressure in most cases due to a clogged oil pick up tube or an issue with the engine oil pump or worn bearings in the engine.I would have the engine oil pressure tested with an oil pressure test gauge to see if the pressure is low and if found low then the fault will need located and repaired to correct the low pressure to correct this noise here.I would have this done as soon as you can to prevent any internal engine damage.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.
