Oil light flickers was told oil pressure is good?


There may be a misunderstanding here.
Yes the warning light comes on when the oil pressure drops below 5psi.
If the light comes on and the switch is working correctly, the oil pressure is not good. Any problem with the pump or the screen would make the pressure not good.
If the oil pressure has been checked with a mechanical gauge and it is above 20psi, the switch or the wiring could be faulty.
You would need to have the pressure checked to know.

2003 Hyndai Elantra oil light has started flickering, Why?


If it flickers at idle, it "might" be engine wear, especially if you are approaching 200,000 miles. It might also be a faulty oil pressure gauge sending unit which is a little more likely.

I had changed the oil 2000 miles ago cause the check oil light came on. The light still remained on after the oil change. I told the mechanic and he did something to the system and the light went off. Now...


You need to check the oil pressure. You need a analogue oil pressure guage to fit in the hole where the sensor is on the engine. It may need an adapter to make one fit. This will give you a correct oil pressure reading. Did you change the oil filter when you changed the oil?

1989 honda accord lxi fi oil light


Sounds like there is an oil pressure problem. Now this can be due to several factors. 1. low oil level in car
2. bad oil pump
3.bad oil pressure switch /sending unit
4. last but not least check oil filter and make sure its not clogged.
worn engine main/connecting rod bearings.
have pressure checked with a manual guage at oil pressure switch for the correct pressure. If that's good then the switch is bad and problem solved.
if it low then you will have to check pump and bearings. Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA
