Oil Light Flashing

Hello PZ,

I'm hoping someone here can help me out.

I have a 5th gen prelude VTEC with 138,601 km's. Last week my oil light came while I was driving it to get an oil change. They used the recommended 5w30 and did a flush. The car seemed fine until the next day, after driving it for about 20km's, the oil pressure light flickered. I stopped the car immediately and had it towed to my regular mechanic. The shop checked the oil pressure manually, did some diagnostics, took it for a drive and found nothing wrong with the car. Engine is fine, no noises, no smell, nothing.

However, I drove it home from the shop and the oil light came on again after about 15 min of driving. This time the light came on while in neutral, then stopped when in gear. THEN after about another 10 minutes of driving the oil light started blinking, then stayed on after another 5 min. (by this time I was home and stopped driving it)

I called the shop and they suggested a new sensor but after reading about this on other peoples posts I'm not so sure its the sensor. If anyone else has had this issue and found a resolution PLEASE let me know. I don't want my car to die!

any info at this point is really helpful so please let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

Start with a sensor. They go bad over time...
Well first check the connection to the sensor. It may be 'cruddy'...

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Oil Light Flashing

What above said. My oil light would flash due to low oil and it would slosh back n forth under heavy braking.
