Probably need to check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge to verify where the oil pressure is. If there is a lot of miles on it, may want to go to a 10W 30 high mileage oil. It just may be getting tired.

Also when changing oil add some Lucas Engine Oil Stabilizer. If oil pressure is good and just tapping oil stabilizer will take care of tap.

I changed oil ,but noise still there ,the oil pressure gauge is in half then low ,up and down ,it's scarry cos if i need to swap the oil pump is gonna cost me an eye ..
