    This could be any number of things, I advise you have a Ford technician listen to it, they will as a rule listen for free.

More than lickey you need to have a new oil pump or oil sending unit installed. the tapping is due to not enouph oil to either the top of the engine or the bottom of the engine. if you do not have enouph oil pressure it will cause you to have low compresion and you need the compresion to move..... if you have some but not enouph compression than you will loose power trying to take off in fast paced traffic or up a hill and from a stop light....

have your oil pump and oil sending unit checked....
the noise you are hearing is going to be from the engine not having enouph oil to either the top or the bottom of the engine.
If you do not have enouph oil getting to either part of the engine than you will loose compression and compression makes you move. i would start there

Could bad a lifter gone bad or dirty, start with the simple and add a bottle of http://www.marvelmysteryoil.com/ to your engine oil. This free up and lifters that may have dirt in it, it the noise is still there. The most likely your going to have to have your rocker arms or lifters replaced.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck

if its kknocking thats not a good sign thats usually a motor rebuild but if its a tap then it could be a lifter or something loose under the valve cover ive had the tapping noise and knocking happen to me tapping on a 67 chevy truck turns out it was the lifters then knocking in a 92 honda accord turns out it was a bent rod so it had to have the motor rebuilt as far as power loss it may have a clog in a fuel line or something shouldnt be the pump unless the vehicle doesnt start or it shuts off while driving, and the smell of gas on the oil dipstick im not to familiar with that but im positive that thats not good;

Sounds like a small tapping in the motor but no loss of power, and shifting smooth still. What is that tap?

2004 RX 330: intermittent power steering loss, hard to turn, so...


I think you may have a problem with your electric assisted power steering motor. Is the loss in power only when your are making sharp turns to the right or left?
Do you hear any load noises or squeling sounds?
You should have it inspected, Don't want you to lose control while driving.

Lifter tapping


The tappet noise usually will get louder and louder as it wears. A totally collapsed lifter will definitely be noticeable by loss of power to that cylinder, misfiring, and excessive noise. But then again your current lifter noise could be possibly maintained for years to come by regular and consistent oil changes.
