Put the correct amount and type of oil in it and if the ticking continues , get it to a shop , before further problems occur.
4 or 6 cyl.? DIY or shop?
Do your brake lights work?
Possible 'mode' control motor , if equipped , might be what you're looking for. Does it stay only on defrost or floor? Fan works on all speed settings?
The 'engine' light is related to emissions (pollution/exhaust) and performance related problems. Low oil creates possible mechanical failures that may not cause emissions problems right away. Best , is to stop running it and have it towed to a repair facility for diagnosis. If it's knocking , and you've already put the oil back to it's proper level , then internal damage has most likely already occurred. Continued running/driving it may make it unrepairable.
MPH or KPH?.......BIG difference.
describe 'sound'. Clunk , click ,rattle , groan ,squeak????
IF the original compressor failed internally , then there is probably debris in system that wasn't removed/flushed out , before the other stuff was installed. new condenser , evaporator and orifice tube?
When you say 'fork tip' , are you referring to the part that goes into the end of the cam? It only should go in one way , and yes there should be oil on it. there should not be oil inside the housing. was it running before you replaced all the parts you listed?
