The first thing you should do is change the oil filter. No matter how old it is. If that doesn't work repost.

SOURCE: 88 ford ranger 2.9 low oil pressure

i just bought a BII with famous tick..........oil pressure light came on (no gauge). I installed mechanic gauge and showed 5 psi so I decided to replace oil pump. Pulled pan off (not fun!) the pickup tube was clogged and the was part of the timing chain tensioner in pan. I then pulled timing cover off only to find chain streched and the chain guide and tensioner pretty much gone. I think tick was chain slap..........will know for sure in a couple days.

CHECK THE OIL PUMP SUMP TUBE O-RING. THEY COLLAPSE CAUSING THE OIL PUMP TO PULL AIR INSTEAD OF OIL. TO VERIFY OVER FILL ENGINE OIL AND CHECK ENGINE OIL PRESSURE. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM ON ALL NEWER GM V-8 ENGINES : 4.8 5.3 5.7 6.0

While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

I have a engine noise sounds like lifters but goes away and then comes back


What is your oil pressure gauge doing? Low oil pressue will cause lifter sound. Check your oil. A small exhaust leak will sound like lifters also, but generally will go away after the exh manifolds heat up, if they have a small crack.

How do you repair lifter


you can try doing an oil system flush and oil change as sometimes a little dirt may cause a lifter problem. if this doesn`t help then checking the oil pressure may show if you have low oil pressure. if this is good then you may just have a worn lifter. replace all lifters and inspect the cam lobes for wear, as you don`t say how many miles are on the motor.

Lifters


Lifter noise is an indication of low oil pressure, that can be from low oil level and other things like a defective oil pump or plugged oil passages or excessive engine main and rod bearing clearances. Please have the oil pressure checked with a special tool, DO NOT DRIVE THIS WITH LOW OIL PRESSURE.

Oillifter noise, oil getting sticky


Need to check the oil pump pressure or if there is a lag in pressure. You need to check if the oil lamp lights up soon after starting and if so the pressrure can be low. Also check the quality of oil , change the oil if this was not done for a long time.

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.
