Incorrect weight oil. Cheap or defective filter. Change the oil and use a Motorcraft or Purolator filter and the correct weight as described in your owner's manual. If this does not help, then purchase a can of Seafoam Motor Treatment. Pour it into the crankcase per the instructions on the container. If you have clogged or partially stuck lifters, this will clean them. This is an excellent product sold at Advance and many other auto parts stores. Read about it at www.seafoamsales.com I have seen 20W50 oil make the lifters go nuts; I use 10W30. The 2.3 rangers have a problem with high mileage lifter noise because the oil pickups clog from the oil pan gasket coming apart. My Ranger did that and I thought the engine was damaged, I changed the oil pickup, the noise went away and the oil pressure was a lot better, and I had no damage to the bearings.
could be a lifter sticking

If you have a 4.0 SOHC engine you are hearing the timing chain rattle against the timing chain guides. Some slight noise is normal, but an excessive amount may mean you have timing chain guide and/or tensioner problems. If you have a 4.0 OHV engine, then you are probably hearing some lifter noise. Again, some may be normal, but excessive may be an indication of lifter troubles.
A clicking noise, when accelerating, can be caused by a worn CV joint. The CV joint can cause the axle to collapse when it breaks.
NO. The engine computer is in open loop until the engine heats up to operating temperature 195 degrees are more. that means it don't hear the lifter noise and by the time the computer can, the lifter quites making noise.

One thing that can cause a clicking noise under the car is when the bar bushings get worn out on the sway bar. Also, it could be coming from the struts if strut oil is leaking. Other things that can cause a clicking noise if not working properly are the exhaust system and the transmission clutch assembly.
Bearing noise is usually deeper and comes from farther down in the engine. Lifter noise is more of a ticking and is up in the engine heads.
Depending on the vehicle, it most likely needs adjustment.
New lifters or repairing the cause of low oil pressure.
