Oil Light

I was driving my 96 prelude 4AT f22a1, and the oil light is coming on after driving more then half an hour. And when I get on the brakes is flickers with a slight rough idle, then once I hit the gas it just blinks on and off. Now if I shut off the car for a hour or so, then hop back in it, it wont blink. Now the rough idle has been almost all the way fixed I cleaned the IACV and FIV. I think, the fuel fliter needs changed, but in time. I did check the oil levels and its midway in the safe zone. Other then oil pump (praying its not) is the oil pressure switch. If its the switch its like 10 bucks from advance, any suggestions?


p.s. Sorry for the non liner typing I fell tons of times yesterday (37 times to be exact) and I am sore. Thanks to friends saying lets go from the bunny hill to the monster one in just 7 hours.

Re: Oil Light

the only time your oil light comes in is if your low on oil or if your oil pressure drops to a certain point. If its blinking every once in a while, try checking your oil. But if it stays on constantly then its your oil pressure. In that case I would try changing the oil pressure sending unit and then try changing the oil pump

Re: Oil Light

Yeah the oil light comes on if pressure is below 8 PSI. Definitely try a new sender before tearing down the engine

Re: Oil Light

I changed my oil when I changed the OPS, the boot over it was hard and brittle like my vavle cover gasket, the rings below the rocker arms, and spark plug tubes. So I replaced it and put a K&N oil filter and synthetic oil in, it didnt come back on. So hopefully that fixed it.
