I had to replace main bearings in my 2.9 after 140k. It lost oil press and started knocking. This is caused by main bearings being worn out. The main bearings are what hold your oil pressure.crank bearings are the main bearings.every 100to140k they wear out and when at idle no oil pressure. Hope this helped. Ranger chuck.

The lifter noise might have been a bearing going bad or a piston ring. if you lost power you probably lost compression on one cylinder. Try checking your compression with a compression tester screwed into your spark plug socket. here is a site with a procedure.
