Not missng a push rod, sound more like what is called the connecting rod. This normally comes lose from either no oil, or someone has been running the engine past red line. The clicking noise is from the solinoid and it does this especially in cases like this when you have destroyed your motor. It sounds like you will have to have your motor replaced.

Starting problems with my 1995 Cultass Ciera

Try turning the engine using a socket on the crankshaft bolt. If it really hits something, it could be the timing chain has slipped or something else is broken inside the engine.

Hi:) That sound like the solenoid is the problem it is located on the starter and if the solenoid is not working right it will do all the things you are explaining.And yes heat has alot to do with it and being ware out.If it is the original it is time to replace the starter anyways it's 16 years old.

Oil pump replacement

This is a major job. you have to remove the engine mount bolts, raise the engine to the point that it's raising the vehicle, remove the oilpan on the bottom of the engine, remove the oilspash pan, then remove the oil pump. Are you sure this is what is wrong? Oil pumps last for almost ever. If you ran it out of oil, it is most likely main and rod bearings. If you didn't run it out then it could be an oilsending unit gone bad. If you give me more details I can narrow it down. your year should not need an oil pump.

Loud engine knocking on 2001 Ford Focus

Sounds to me like a very common problem has occured to your neighbor. If this is a SOHC engine, one of the valve seats in the number 4 cylinder has fallen out. I'm sure it has damaged the head and the piston. Stop trying to run it or you might blow a hole in the cylinder wall or break a rod or both.
