Determining reason for check engine light in 06 chevy aveo

possible oil pressure switch, oil pump itself, or rod bearing issues due to poor oil change history. (that last one is more of a knock that a tick)
Sounds for sure like you aren't getting the proper oil pressure and the ticking would most likely be the cam/rockers/valves letting you know they need more oil on them.

Red lights came on 6-8 on the tachometer?

Sue Hanna, What do you mean by this? Do you mean when your Tachometer revs to the 6-8 range, the lights go red? or are they going on all the time? Is this something that just started?

2008 oil leak and engine ticking

An engine used oil for lubrication and colling. If there is no oil then there is no lubrication. No lubrication means lots of heat and friction. Is it a ticking or banging noise? I do believe it is an ohc engine so it couldnt be a lifter ticking. It is probably a rod knocking. It so then it will more than likely need an engine

Ticking motor, slipping tranny?

The ticking is a stuck lifter cause is usually from the oil not being changed. The transmission oil may never have been changed and now it may need to be overhauled. Is the fluid level correct and clean or does it smell burnt? Take it in for service and have them replace your brake fluid and inspect for any problems. Many people don't maintain their cars and trade them into dealers.
