Hi, I have a 1999 mitsubishi mirage with 75k on it. The previous owner drove it hard. After driving on the highway 60-70mph and then off the highway: the lifter makes a loud ticking noise. I changed the oil 5-30 (maybe I should have used synthetic) I put a little stp in there too. The oil pan has a crack where it leaks a minor amount of oil: but could this result in low oil pressure on the highway? Just driving around town 35-45 mph no problem (no noise whatsoever). Any suggestions? I am not a mechanic. Thanks ahead of time for your help!
