If the oil light is coming on then your oil pressure is dropping below 5psi which means the head is starved of oil causing the lifters to tick and the chain tensioner to loosen. If that lights coming on there is something seriously wrong with the motor and shouldn't be driving it. Either your oil pump nut is loose or you have a cracked oil pickup (both very common). I highly doubt your issue is just a loose tensioner as that won't cause your lifters to tick, oil isn't getting where it needs to
