Icon5 Oil Pump Noise! 5th Gen

Hi guys, this is my very first thread. I usually just look up my questions. hehe.

Anyways, I was unable to figure this one out...

out of no were my oil light started to flicker rapidly. At first i was like WTF! but then it went away...i came to neutral at a stop the oil light started to flicker, i rev the car and it went away....

I checked my oil (Dip Stick) the next morning before I took off to work. oil was fine. coming back from work same crap was happening so i stopped at autozone and did a complete oil/filter change.

The Light went away...but that little F****er came right back and started to flicker. but this time it brought something back along with it...this annoying whining sound. its continues...

the whining sounds like its coming from within the oil pan...

Would it be my oil pump that was causing my light to flicker...but now it flickers and blinks after driving it for a while with the annoying whine sound??


Do I Need to Replace My Oil Pump For The Whine Noise To Go Away?


And Then The Second Video Shows After I came to a stop after driving it with the light flickering and going off as i rev it

Re: Oil Pump Noise! 5th Gen

The noise sounds more like the timing belt tensioner, but you've definitely got oil pressure issues. Also not a good idea to rev it like that. Just because you've got enough pressure to turn the light off, it's probably not the proper pressure to match the RPM

Re: Oil Pump Noise! 5th Gen

Saturday I will be getting a new oil pump in. i did so much research ,oil pump is right behind the timing belt but its not the belt im pretty sure. the gears on the oil pump i believe could be causing that noise.

My car is now on stand by mode hahaha i don't want to move it, afraid i will mess the whole block if oil is not getting around right.

On the first video i rev it up so the light can come on so i cans how you guys. but i had to drive it a bit. which shows on the second vid how it flickers and all.

Re: Oil Pump Noise! 5th Gen

I know its been a while but was the oil pump the cause of the whining? My prelude started doing it after 5spd swap... changed power steering and serpentine already hopping it would fix it, i dont really want to change my timing belt since it was change a couple weeks before the swap.
