SOURCE: maintanance light is on
The ticking sound is probably an out of adjustment valve.This can cause performance problems if it is severe enough. Go to www.georgebelton.com/6g.civic.tech/valve.clearance/index.php for step by step instructions w/ detailed photographs for this repair. The timing belt is one of those type of things that works 100% or not at all. At 126,000 miles I recommend having the belt(s) replaced. It is fairly inexpensive to have done and will extend the life of your vehicle 2 fold. If you belt fails it will probably destroy your motor so it is money well spent. Good Luck!!!

The most likely cause of your problem is your alternator and/or battery. You can have them tested at most any auto parts store for free.
One of these two things will fix this type of problem 90% of the time.

SOURCE: changing 10-40 to 20-50 oil
The use of a 20-50 oil will not harm your vehicle,,,neither will the use of lucas additive. BUT, have you determined the reason for excessive oil consumption? (leaks vs burn off) Even what appears to be a small drip can use more oil than you think (ever leave a container under a dripping faucet?) Have you had a compression or leakdown test done on the engine to determine the extent of cylinder/ring wear? You may find that much of the oil consumption is due to dried out valve stem seals (far less expensive than a rebuild) In any case, using a good grade of oil will delay the wear process. Using a poor quality lubricant will accelerate it.
Poor quality lubricants have a high parafin content which forms sludge and are prone to burnoff even in a well running engine. This forms carbon in the ring grooves and causes the rings to stick and lowers compression as well as permitting more oil into the combustion chamber. That's something you don't want or need in a worn engine.
