It has low oil pressure. The tapping sound is the sound of the hydraulic valve lifters not getting enough oil.

Replace the oil and the oil filter. Make sure to put in at least 4 quarts of oil (check manual to see how much is required). I suggest using oil designed for high mileage cars.

If it still does this you probably need to replace the oil pump which is a job for a mechanic.

You could have a bad oil pump. Even though the engine has oil, if the pump is bad, oil pressure will be low, hence the oil light. The tapping could be hydraulic lifters not working correctly because of low oil pressure, or the failed oil pump. See a mechanic ASAP. At a bare minimum, he can run a computer code scan to see if there is something detected by the onboard computer.

2002 camery roaring from front seems louder when slowing down. It is not brakes


check wheel bearing...transmission output shaft bearing. noise is louder because when bearing slow down, they get louder from worn down ball bearing inside the cage, space is developing between the ball bearing..caused by lack of lubricate, or just worn out bearings
