Why would a 1997 Ford Escort make a ticking noise like it is out of oil and die at stop lights?

Hey Alissa==Put some oil addativee in the crankcase for sticking valve lifters. It should help after running for a couple of weeks. The dying is probably the idle control solonoid which is on the throtle body. Take it off and clean it. Also clean the inside of the throtle body. GoodluckJoe
