Have you *checked* the oil level?

There is a dip stick in the engine, pull it out (with your car on level ground turned off, but engine warm) and wipe it off. Stick it back in and then pull it out again.

It will tell you the level of the oil. It -might- help to get the oil changed as well.


Most likely the ticking is from your valvetrain, rockers, lifters, pushrods etc.. Which yes..does tick when low on oil or when you use a lighter oil.

ok.
i run 10w 30 in it i changed it and it still makes the sound.
it misses every now and then. i just bought a set of lifters and push rods im goin out here in like 30 mins to get all the gaskets i need to change my heads out and i got an extra set from my brother that are rebuilt with new valves. valve seals, cam ready valve springs, shaved, ported, and cleaned up zero miles on then and im doing the swap 2morow it'll take a good 4 or 5 hours but we have done it before with his mustang and now im putin new lifters push rods and new heads on my t bird and hopefully it will fix it and if not im changing the oil pump
thanks for the advise
