Oil pressure light comes on at 5-7psi. If you are getting the light on at any time after start-up you have MAJOR problems. Low oil pressure reported - quantify: 20psi 30psi? Shop talk is cheap - data is gold. I cannot give a qualified answer on exactly what pressure is 'normal' as I do not have a manual covering that engine, so you will need to research that. Reports of low oil pressure and 'noise' is never a good sign. Can you quantify oil pressure independently (hire/borrow a gauge)?
Good - Fast - Cheap: Pick any two.

I've just changed my wiper blades and now my reverse lights don't work. Should I change my fuel pump relay?
