Question about 1997 Honda Accord

Oil light flashing

My oil light flashes while the car is running. I just got an oil change about a week and a half ago....I topped off the oil myself, that didn't work. There are no signs of oil leaking under my car. I noticed the light last came on yesterday while I was driving down a hill, then turned and was driving up a hill.

SOURCE: leaking oil around the oil filter. is there a

Oh, one should make sure that the old rubber gasket didn't get stuck on the engine block where the filter is. Sometimes, people change their own oil and don't look at the old filter they took off, to see if the gasket came off and stuck to the engine block.

In that case, the new filter has a gasket, and the old gasket is stuck to the block, and you have two gaskets stuck together, which will leak.

This is a common mistake to happen on any car.

Good luck on this repair.

if you got the oil changed a week ago,, the oil should be fine, I'm assuming the did the filter at the same time, if not do that , also , check the oil level, make sure its to the full line while sitting, Not running, if the light was on prior to your oil change, sometimes it takes several days for the code to clear

The Change Oil (not oil light) in my 2002 Camaro came on less than 10 miles after it left the shop for new brakes, and less than 300 miles since its last oil change. What would cause the change oil light...


If you changed your oil just less than three miles ago, you just need to reset the computer. In this vehicle it may be the same as other chevys. what you will need to do is turn the key to the run position. Depress on the gas pedal three times and turn off the key. this should reset the computer. good Luck

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.
