Engine Mechanical problem
1996 Jaguar XJ6 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles

I have just switched from petroleum based oil to synthetic oil. The oil light was coming randomly and the guage would show no oil pressure before the switch to synthetic. It has become more prevalent and now the lifters are making noise. Should I replace the pump and what type of wrenches should I use (metric, american, etc.)
thanks

Start by using a slightly thicker grade oil. (10w30, 10w40). Check or replace the oil pressure switch/sensor
