Did you replace the oil pan? many new cars have an oil level sensor and will not start if they read low oil so as to prevent the motor from seizing from too much heat and friction/wear.

Busted oil pan

Oil pickup tube is likely bent as well, replaced that with the pan?
The click is either because the starter was hit as well or the bent tube is blocking engine rotation. That's on the optimistic side, there could be other damage to the engine or transmission causing this if the starter, battery and power connections check out.

How do you replace or fix ticking lifters

I,m going to share something with you that i found out my van had ticking lifters and all i did was clean the oil pan filter

1. drain all the oil from oil pan
2. take oil pan off
3. once that is done you will see a long tube comming down by the crank.
4. remove the 1 or 2 bolts that hold the filter on
5. once removed you can give it a good rinse out with a gas/2stroke oil mix
6. once fully dry replace back to original location
7 put new oil pan gasket on
8 put oil pan back on
9 torque bolts down to 12.5 foot pounds
10 full with oil
11 start vehicle and let run

Good luck!
Let me know how it turns out

How to replace head gasket and how to put it back in time when assembling back together on 2.4l (quad4) engine??

There will be marks on the cam gear and the crank gear. Some are dots, some are diamond shaped. You just line the two up so the top mark is directly over mark on the crank. You may have to turn the crank by hand which is easier with all the plugs out, to line it up. You will want to drain oil,change filter, and put in new oil to get rid of contaminated oil in oilpan.
If you fail, you are not talking about a lot of money to try to fix the top of the engine compared to engine replacement. For the most part, you could still tow it.
You could ask how much it would cost just to replace the gasket and let someone else bust their knuckles.

1997 ford taurus will not start

voltage is not really the issue here, the amperage is the thing that make things go.
you battery may have 1 or 2A, but hte bettery still reads 12v.
are you getting any gas to the engine.?
try a new battery, and give it a short bust, not a long cranks. and give enough gas in between the bust.

just off the wall guess here but sounds like oil filter sending unit in the pan these get cloged with old sitting oil use a solution like warner mystery oil in pan with normal oil this will break down old oil after 500 miles replace oil and do it again for 3 + 500 mile oil changes this will help clean out the old oil
also you might have gotten your plug wires wrong in fireing order
