Hello, Take your Explorer to an Autozone, Oreillys, or Advance autoparts store and get a free scan on the computer and the charging system. The ticking noise you hear can be the spark jumping from a bad sparkplug coil or wire.

Sometimes an arcing part will make a ticking sound and can charge the electronics with random pulses that can cause permanent damage. It is also possible your Alternator is working below capacity and will make the Battery fail when conditions are right.

This is something which should be checked before you are stranded. I hope you find my solution very helpful in keeping your Explorer operating.

You will have to take an oil pressure reading and compare to specifications. It could be that the pick up screen is plugged. Do not drive the car as damage to engine will occur.

Check engime light comes on and off


If you hear any ticking or knocking inside the engine do not drive it. You could change the oil pressure sending unit if there's no noise, most times that will fix the problem. It is advisable to put an external mechanical pressure gauge on there, either temporary or permanent...then, you can read the actual pressure...
I prefer gauges to lights because most time lights (either temp or oil) tell you "you have just blown your engine", instead of warning you when a problem is just beginning.

I have a 4 cyl 2001 toyota camry. I hear a ticking/tapping


if the oil level is ok,and the noise is coming from the top of the engine i would think also in the lifters,if is from the bottom,then the problem is in the crankshaft bearings,either way that would cost you some good money to fix it,i would recomend to add STP or Lucas engine restore to help the engine to lubricate better,they dont fix the problem but help to run you engine for a lots of more miles before you come up with some resourses to fix it wich is only possible replacing the parts,they cant be adjusted

Discovery warning lights staying on after engine started


try disconnecting the positive side of the battery for about ten minutes. My 2000 neon was doing the same thing. If there is no actual problem, electrically, then the lights should go out the next time the computer does a check of the car. Hopefully there is no actual issue. See if there is moisture around or in your fuse/relay box or dash. I'm not that experienced in the electronics department, so that is all the info I can in knowledge suggest.

Tick noise


if its a constintly ticking noise while driving sometimes it can go and fade away, this is due to your tappets or also lifters are worn out or not getting oil to them due to your oil pick up, and this will also give you the engine light and the engine light wil stay on all the time till the problem is fixed
