There is a "ticking" coming from my car, sounds just like when a rock is stuck in the tire, someone told me it may be my front differential, something about barrings and oil.I know nothing about cars except when I put gas in them they go. Please help, as I cannot afford to take it somewhere where they can take it all apart and want to fix things that dont need fixin! Also, my ABS light is on.

It sounds to me like a CV joint, (constant velocity joint). This is not a job for the non mechanically inclined. The smartest thing to do, is determine which side the noise is coming from, and then purchase the complete axle assembly from a parts house, then have a shop install it for you. Good luck, let me know how you make out.
