If there is any iol starcation, the oil indicator light would come on.
It is a known prblem with Mitsubishi engines that the hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA or commonly called lifters) tends to knock intermittently. Some of the HLA are not functioning correctly and you can either replace them or have them serviced/cleaned to resolve the noise.
One of the main cause of this problem is oil condition and quality. Engines that have sludge accumulation due to whatever reasons would more likely have this problem.
