    Could be any number of things but high possibility it's a lifter. If you're getting low oil pressure as per your other threads, the engine may not be in very good shape at all

    No.
    Are you sure he didn't mean the o ring on the oil pump/pickup? It's common for that to wear, which then causes pressure issues and if the pressure is so low the lifters aren't getting adequate flow then they'll tick

    Define "heaps"?
    You want around 30psi at hot idle and 10psi for every 1000rpm after that.

    If the light was coming on like you said previously, it's very low. It may not be occurring all the time, maybe only at start up, at higher rpm or some other condition

    2 bar at idle and 0.7 every 1000rpm there after.

    Is it an actual mechanical gauge or the one on the dash?
