Clicking, like from inside the engine, or where from? It sounds like you have a valve tapping.

2007 Honda Pilot VSA light came on at a low RPM & vehicle started bucking. Turn on and off to reset. Honda technician recommended Motor Honey to increase viscosity and oil pressure. Is this safe?

Down side is this is a band aid approach and doesn't fix the problem. Sounds like you need to find a new service technician. I would drop the oil pan and replace the oil pump and clean the screen if not replace the screen.

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.

You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

Does adding oil fix the p1009 code

Low oil or wrong oil will cause issues with the variable valve timing solenoid as it is a hydrolic valve that used the oil to work when commanded.

I have a 2006 dodge durango 5.7 hemi, i had my oil changed and headed out of town the next day, truck started raddling and knocking, the oil light came on and we pulled over, thinking we didnt have oil to...

Too much oil can do more damage than too little in some senarios, the oil actually increases the drag on internal engine parts, especially the crankshaft, when over filled and at higher RPM's. Drain it out till level is at the low side of dipstick marks and run vehicle. Definely bring this to the attention of persons who serviced your vehicle. Hopefully you caught it in time. My family members have lost 3 motors to this kind of incompetent service over the years!

My ford Explorer make a ticking sound at low speeds

Does it sound like it's coming from the engine? If so, you may have a valve sticking. The sound will pretty much go away as you pick up speed because the valves are working faster and harder. The best solution I can give will be to buy an engine cleaner that is added to your oil. drain about 1 quart of oil from the engine and add the cleaner to the oil. Start the engine and let it run for about 5 min. Drain all the oil and replace the oil filter and new oil to the engine. Sometimes this will have to be done 2 times but usually 1 will do. One other issue could be a spark knock, low grade gas causes this. If I run in to this problem I usually suggest buying prestone octane booster, which increases the grade of gas and cleans the fuel system at the same time.

94 f350 7.3l turbo diesel looses oil pressure as rpm increase

Before you spend money on a new gauge. Get an oil pressure testing gauge for $20 , remove the oil pressure sending unit and test the oil pressure. If oil pressure at idle and 3000 rpm's is a-ok via spec's ( big money repair items) then its either the gauge a clogged or defective sending unit or the circuitry. (little money repair items)
You can also have this done at a repair shop.

Oil pressure guage pushes to 80 when not idling.

In an engine in good condition, oil pressure is a function of RPM. Higher rpm, higher pressure. Whne coasting downhill, in gear, the engine rpm will increase, hence, the oil pressure will go up, as required, and as expected.

There is nothing wrong with your engine, unless the oil pressure goes excessively high under any regime. Low oil pressure is a sign of low rpm, or under load, a sign of worn parts.

AC blow out hot at low rpm

when you are stoped does the car idle fine. when the rpms are low the compressor does not get the pressure up high enough. you may need to get you idel turned up a little or your vaccume advance may have a vaccume leak.

Valve lifters have staeted tapping. What can I add

You can try adding Marvel Mystery oil about 1000 KM before your next oil change and hope that would clean the dirt from the lifter's. If not, your cam's could be worn. Good luck and try not to run in the high RPM's with the thiner oil in your blazer.
