Question about 2002 Toyota Camry
My oil light is on and it has atapping sound when idle running there is plenty of oil in it what is the cause of this
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.
