Oil pressure issues Type SH

Hey all,
I've had this 97 Prelude for about 6 months and I'm trying to decide if I should hate it or love it??
The oil pressure indicator started coming on yesterday (blinks), so I check the oil and it was a little low, maybe 1/2-1 quart low. I topped it off and same thing, the light still blinks. So I shut it down and figured I either have an oil pump or pressure switch problem. There are no strange noises coming from the engine while running and I can see oil splashing when I remove the oil cap.

I decided to change the switch, but it appears to be a nightmare at this point. I went from the topside, removing the intake, but there are two more bolts that look like they need to come out from the underside. On the underside, the atts (I think that's what it's called) is in the way.

My questions are:
Am I stuck having to take the atts out to do this?
Is there another location on this VTEC that is easier to get to, to check the oil pressure with a guage?

Thanks for the help

Re: Oil pressure issues Type SH

any other symptoms associated with the oil pressure light turning on? If i were you, I'd try to get it fix asap, because mine had the same problem and then motor blew when driving it. Good luck, i couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. Now i'm waiting on a new motor.
