Question about 1996 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Need engine schematic for oil flow I have an oil leak above the oil filter around the oil pressure sending unit (I think). The filter doesn't have much oil in it, so I think something is plugged. I assume I wouldn't have the leak if the pump was bad. It only leaks when the engine is running and it leaks pretty bad (not driveable).

    You will need a factory manual for this info, look on ebay, they are rather cheap there.

If it is leaking at the oil filter the previous rubber gasket may have stuck to the block. When the new oil filter was installed then the gasket was doubled and will leak.

96 deVille. Think the oil pressure sending unit is leaking. How do you remove. Mine is located above the AC pressure lines and I can't reach.


Hello: The oil pressure sending unit is located on the oil filter adapter, which is behind the lower front engine mount. It is best to get a deep oil pressure socket to do the task. Check with Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O'Reilly, or NAPA for the socket.

Oil pressure gauge goes up to 80 pounds


80 lbs is good. It's more like around 50, it's probably the oil sending unit. Take a look at it aand make sure it in't leaking. If there is any oil covering it and none coming from above it is leaking. I don't know engine size, but they are usually located around the oil filter.

Oil leak above the oil filter no one can point the like


Oil leaks can be a pain to locate so I will give you a few tricks I've picked up along the way for locating oil leaks. Start by cleaning/degreasing the area. You want to remove as much of the old residue as possible. Then you can do several things from here.

1. Purchase and oil dye additive (this additive makes the oil glow when a black light i shined on it) and run the engine for a little while then re-inspect with black light to find locations where dye is concentrated.

2. After cleaning, spray the are that you suspect the leak is coming from with a spray on type foot powder(powder sprays on white providing an excellent contrast to trace leak). Run the engine and follow the oil trail to source of leak

I need to know where the oli sending unit is and how to replace it?

Fig.: Oil pressure switch (sending unit) schematic


The low oil pressure warning lamp will illuminate when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position without the engine running. The lamp also illuminates if the engine oil pressure drops below a safe oil pressure level. To test the system, perform the following:

  1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.
  2. If the lamp does not light, check for a broken or disconnected wire around the engine and oil pressure sending unit switch.
  3. If the wire at the connector checks out OK, pull the connector loose from the switch and, with a jumper wire, ground the connector to the engine.
  4. With the ignition switch turned to the ON position, check the warning lamp. If the lamp still fails to light, check for a burned out lamp or disconnected socket in the instrument cluster.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
On the 2.4L engine, the oil pressure switch is located on the side of the engine block facing the firewall. On the 3.0L engine, the oil pressure switch is located on the oil filter adapter housing, next to the starter motor. On the 3.3L and 3.8L engines, the oil pressure switch is located next to the oil filter.
  1. Locate the oil pressure sending unit on the engine.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Disconnect the pressure switch electrical harness.
  4. Using a pressure switch socket, deep-well socket or wrench, loosen and remove the pressure switch from the engine.
To install:
  1. Install the pressure switch into the engine and tighten securely.
  2. Attach the electrical connector to the switch.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable.
  4. Start the engine, allow it to reach operating temperature and check for leaks.
  5. Check for proper oil pressure switch operation.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answerr).

Oil leak only when van is running and appears above the starter . Down 3 liters in 1 1/2 days.


It common for the oil to leak there when your oil pressure sending unit has gone bad. It's a simple fix, locate the oil pressure sending unit (between the starter and oil filter are) and replace. Auto Zone will have the part you need and step by step instructions to get the job done, Napa, and Part Source will have the part also. Do not use Teflon tape when installing the new oil pressure sending unit, the end is tapered and it needs a good ground to the engine block to work properly.

Good luck and this should take you around 20 min to replace once your start when the engine has cooled off to work on.
