Ok this one is kind of hard to diagnose but maybe I can give you some answers. The 2 problems you have work hand in hand. If you have low oil level the heat in your cylinder walls raises because there is not enough oil to lubricate the fiction caused by the pistons going up and down. Secondly if your car overheats it gets so hot that the oil gets really thin thus viscosity break down occurs. Your Honda has an electric fan on the radiator and if this fan is not working your car will overheat. Crank your car with the hood up and let it idle till the temperature gauge comes up and the electric fan should come on. You will be able to hear and see this happen. If the temperature guage keeps climbing and the fan has not come on then turn your AC on and see if the fan comes on. They are tied together and when the AC is on the cooling fan switch is bypassed and runs all the time. You also have a oil pump in your engine that keeps the oil pressure moving inside the engine. If this is going out it will cause the oil light to come on and make your engine overheat. I am sure you have checked the oil level and the coolant level in your car but if you haven't please do that. I hope this helps you out to find your problem. Oh yea if the coolant fan comes on when the AC is turned on then you have a bad sensor and you need to replace that. In any case I would not drive it until you figure this out because it will for sure cause engine damage. Good luck, Roger
