Question about Ford E-350
I own a 1995 ford e-350 club wagon van w/140k miles on it...the van is in great condition, until this....I was driving about 65 MPH and slowed down to about 50-55 MPH when comming apon a stoplight...when all of a sudden a fire truck come out into the inersection with the lights on...i was about 20 yards from it when the light changed to red.....in an attempt to slow down quickly, i droped the gearshift into low 1 when i did this the van did what was expected and slowed very quickly, whitch reved the engine very high for the tranning to catch up. when the van came to a stop the engine died...i started it back up and i noticed the oil presure gauge was on the very low side and was ''wiggling very fast back and fourth'' so i reved the engine up and the pressure went back to normal til the RPMs went back down, then did it again. well i continued to drive the van to the nearest gas station and checked the oil and noticed it was 2+ quarts low added the oil to bring it back to full and checked for any oil leaks...found NO LEAKS at all. so i drove the van as normal for the next 2 days, and now there is a ''clicking sound comming from the engine....but only after the van warms up (10-15mins)
and the sound is not all the time after hearing it for 20-30mins it sometimes gos away then comes back 30-+mins later. so it seems that there is a progressing problem....is there anyone out there that can help me get to the bottom of the problem....this is my only car at this time and most of the work i do is 60-70 miles away....so i'm traveling 4 days a week...PLEASE HELP... Thankyou -Brian
Try oil pump. check lio straner at the bottom of oil pan. the engine reved **** junk clogging the straner it could get stuck oil my still flow but if more junk restrict the rest of the flow.

The clicking sound is from lack of oil or lack of oil pressure. When the lifters pump out then they have too much slack in them and thus the clicking or tapping sound. Sorry to say this, but the engine is either very tired or the oil pump has about had it.
