The oil pressure sending switch is a common problem on Rangers. Of course, you don't really know if that's what's causing the gauge to drop or if it's real. I'd get it swapped out pronto. It is not too expensive and simply screws into the block with a dab of sealant on the threads.

On your 3.0L, the sending switch is in the block behind the PS cylinder head - hard to see from above. Go in through the wheel well and push the rubber splash shield out of the way for a better view. The wire to it is dark green/white.

My old 99 2.5L Ranger made a weird ticking sound too... turns out it was the A/C Compressor... that wouldnt explain the low oil pressure though... LOL

ok boss man the ac problem means its low on freeeon or coolant. to see if it is low, start the truck and make sure the ac is off (or turn on the heater). than open the hood and look at the ac compressor if it kicks on and off you need to charge it up (if you cant or dont want to just unplug it. if you dont it does cost you some mpg.as for the tapping make a small video of it. i can tell better if i hear and see it

no it had plenty of oil in it it was the oil pump that **** out then the cause of that from what i understand caused a seal to break then did some **** to te inside of the motor which caused the lower end to blow so it sucks but a brandy new one will be installed and i'll have my truck back by Thursday fucking sickkkkkkk

To update the profile go to the "Profile" link at the top of the page. Once you are on your profile page, scroll all the way down to the bottom... Down there there is a link that says "Ultimate Profile". This is where you change all sorts of stuff and fill things in... the link above that, i think, is "My Pictures". Uploading into that will display pics on your profile.

Not get to work son! haha
