My oil light is coming on when I have been going long distance on the motorways but has been fine driving round the town and long distance in the country, what could be causing this? It has now started making a ticking noise while it's driving too?

Do you
have the same problem?

That's a serious problem. That light means STOP THE ENGINE IMMEDIATELY. You need to first have the oil pressure checked manually to determine if the gauge is accurate.
