Oil pressure light flashing :(

So about 2 days ago I was driving and I noticed that the oil pressure light was flashing. I checked the oil and everything seems fine, I haven't noticed any difference in performance or power in the car. Everything I've read talks about how the oil pressure light is almost the same as a red ring of death with an xbox 360. I'm hoping this isn't true.

Now, the problem that I have is that I purchased this car used from a lady about 2 months ago. Now I know the lady took very good care of the car, I have a 3 inch pile of receipts FROM Honda where she got every maintenance or oil change done, so I know it's not a problem that's been going on for a while that she tried to hide. I don't, however, know very much about Preludes and problems that they have or really all that much about cars in general. The only possible problem I can come up with is the oil pump. I haven't been able to find a receipt for any oil pump in the stack that she gave me so I'm assuming it's never been replaced which could be a good explanation.

What I'm hoping for from you guys is some possible causes and/or courses of action to take to get this light turned off and staying off.

ANY help would be awesome.

Check your oil sensor that's right by the oil filter bc I had to get my O-ring to my oil sensor replaced and that's what threw my CEL on!!!

EDIT:^^ beat me to it. I blame it on searching


Oil pressure senor could be bad.

Check this out some good info here: my oil light keeps coming on

Or you could run a search on oil pressure(what I did for you...) and find a better/ more threads.

LOOk around oil switch like what was said in the treads by the other guy's and,if leaking replace then see if the light stays on with engine running and, if it return it could be the oil pump . Take care.

Re: Oil pressure light flashing :(

Check what they've said, and in the meantime don't drive it. It doesn't lake long at all to destroy the engine if there's no oil pressure. We just finished replacing the engine in a 92 Accord because my sisters boyfriend didn't know it was major.

And here's a picture.

You gotta love it when that ish happens. Believe it or not though, the newer Hondas are very strong. My dad (works at a honda dealer, parts...) told me of a woman who got an oil change done, drove home and called the dealer saying here oil light was on. So they told her to come back, turns out the tech emptied the oil pan but forgot to put oil back in. Believe it or not she drove well over 3 hours on the engine with no oil except what residual was left with NO damages whatsoever. Needless to say though she gets free oil changes for the next damn good portion of her life lol.

Re: Oil pressure light flashing :(

Have your dash lights flickered off and back on at all? Like your speedo and tach "die" then return to operation?

This sounds TOTALLY stupid, but the little blue connector plugged into the fuse panel (under dash) came loose in my car and caused the light to flash occasionally. Once I crawled under there and Made sure it was snapped firmly in place the issue went away for me.
