Question about 1997 Honda Accord
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.
I would suggest you have your oil pump checked this may be faulty i had a similar problem .I stopped to check the oil level it was ok, i thought it was a faulty indicator and i knocked a bearing as it was the pump

is it getting noisy... that's usually the first clue... to rule out anything serious have the oil pressure checked.

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.
