Oil light comes on when warmed up and makes slight knocking noise on a 2000 sunfire. what is the cause?

It's most likely low oil pressure. This should be checked out by using a mechanical guage, assuming you have checked the oil level and it is full. This is likely a result of high mileage and old age so unless the engine is in pristeen shape, your best bet is to probably start using a higher viscosity oil, like 15W40 or 20W50. Putting a new oil pump in an old motor isn't normally cost efficient. You put the pump in and then you start fixing other things. The heavier will build your pressure and make the knocking noise go away for a while. It's time to consider your options. Hope this helps.

Knocking knoise under 1500 rpm

If your car has hydraulic tappets and low low oil pressure at engine speeds then it can make tapping noises. Oil pressure is needed to maintaine the tappets clearances, excessive cleaeances will produce noises.

does your cars heater still put out heat or does your car run any hotter than usual? Also check your coolant level do you have to keep adding fluid or is it low now? Check your oil to see if it is a milky off white looking. All signs of a head leak. Low fluid could mean other things so if thats the only sign u have get a compression test to check for sure. Hope I could help.

You may want to check the water pump if it's overheating, have the motor mounts checked if the vehicle is shaking and the alignment and tire pressure are fine, first check the fuses for the interior lights. As for the clicking sound in front tires - please provide further explanation as to the sound, speed of vehicle when it happens, and mileage on the vehicle - could be the CV's but not enough information to assess.

Is the check engine light on? If you have a sensor that is bad, it will cause bad fuel mileage. Especially if it is an oxygen sensor. It might just need a tune-up.
