Question about 1989 Honda Accord 4 Door
I have 137,000 mi. this started a few days ago, when at idle the oil light started to flicker. now it starts to flicker at idle and then stays on even at low rpm driving. at around 2200 rpm the light goes out. is this a bad oil pump or could it be something else. i had this problem about 6 months ago but it went away after a couple of days. thanks for your help.
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
