Question about 2000 Kia Sportage
My 2001 kia sportage has a loud ticking sound in the engine louder at times. the oil pressure light stays on most of the time however I can't establish a pattern of when it goes off and on again. I have recently changes the oil and put an engine flush in. afterward I put lucas oil stabalizer, all of this to hopefully solve this problem. The oil change was many miles overdue, I hope I havent done severe damage to the engine.
any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Oils in long over due service forms **** which can't be circulated properly under normal oil pump pressure causing Crank shaft or cam shaft bearing recieve the lubricant quite late. The said bearings could be damaged.
For the light, the oil pressure switch could have accummulated some **** which is making it malfunction.
