Little help before I spend the cash


I just bought this 87' Ranger 4x4 ext cab 2.9 liter and I am having a few problems. It's a sweet truck inside and out except for the 314,000km it has on it. It runs really good but it uses oil like crazy (Not Leaking) and the lifters are a little noisy, so I would like to know if there is anything I can do about that (Hydraulic lifters/valves). Also when she is warm it tends to idle at about 7-900rpms and the "red oil can" indicator light comes on and it has stalled on me a couple of times. If anyone has an answer on how to get the most out of this truck without a major overhaul, I'd really appreciate it.
