My oil light turns on and I put in new swicth still turns on not sure what it is, anyone know what it could be some mechanic told me to just install new engine its causing problems with engine what is it? anyone know? Honda 96 accord 4 cylinder not a vtec
I wouldn't go back to that mechanic, that's for sure. You should be able to check this easily. Disconnect the wires from the switch and see if the light either stays on or goes off. Then short the wires together. check again. if the light doesn't change state in either test, either the output from the computer that turns the light on and off is bad or the light (dashboard) may have a short causing the light to always remain on.

Yeah mate whilst that spark plug is out of the block plug it back into the spark plug lead and earth it to the body(make sure it's touching steel)Turn the key... the car should start but run rough if the spark plug is touching steel but NOT sparking then you have a coil problem.......
It may be the oil pump. If the gauge is going up when the rpms increase it's probably not the gauge or pressure switch. If the computer senses the oil pressure is low it will shut the vehicle off to try to save it's self from catastrophic failure. Also it may start cranking longer before starting. Thats it building oil pressure before the computer will let it start. Make sure oil is full, clean & thick.
the wire going to the oil pressure switch may be broken but on the other hand it could be the oil pump (usually on the 2.0 tdi engine and they are not cheap) wv do a modified oil pump for them to find out if it is the pump you need to remove the oil filter ind get all old oil out of the housing and fit a brand new filter, then check oil level start car up for about 5 seconds then switch off, remove oil filter again and if its still clean and dry you have on problem with the pump
Hi, your engine oil capacity for your 2.8 is 7.8 litres of oil including new filter,when you have done this start car and wait until oil light go's out this will indicate that the oil filter is full with oil,turn off engine and check oil level on dipstick again.
hope this helps you.
