High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.

You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

Letter A and numbers 1&4 appear on instrumentation panel

A or B = it's time for an oil change. "A" means oil only and "B" means oil and filter but, we always change both.
1 = tire rotation is due.
2 = replace air and cabin filters.
3 = replace transmission fluid.
4 = replace spark plugs.
5 = replace engine coolant.

2007 Honda S2000 I have changed the oil and installed the recommended Fram filter which is significantly smaller than the Honda filter. Problem with that? Also I have searched for the dip stick but cannot...

It is not a unsual for owners to use non oem parts for common service items. The fram filters, as long as it is listed as compatible with the ap2 (2007) s2000 will not be a problem.

Generally however, most owners will rely on oem for many of the common parts, while it is generally the various oils and lubricants in which we are more likely to use an aftermarket brand.

Here is the Honda brand filter

Honda Part# 15400-PCX-004. This is the oil filter specifically for the S2000.

here is a good website to look at in the future, it is where just about all s2k owners do their maintenance shopping.

The dipstick is fairly easy to locate, when facing the engine it is a small black rectangle on the drivers side of the engine block at the near corner.

Always check your oil after the engine has has a chance to cool completely and is parked on level groud.

FYI the difference in oil between the lowest line on the dipstick and the high line of the dipstick is appox 1 quart of oil.

Finally you should always remember to replace the oil drain plug washer with a new one every time you change the oil as it is a one time use part. THey are available at the website I listed above.
Hope this helps.

What parts do i need to service my honda s2000

Change your engine oil with 10W30 every 4,000kms. Change your transmission oil with Honda MTF every 6 months. Change your Differential Oil with 75W90 every 6 months. Check the tire pressure every month. Treat the top with a quality vinyl top protectant often (I use Ragg Topp brand). Wash & wax painted surfaces often. Treat the leather interior with UV protectant designed for convertible top cars (I use Wolfgang brand).

That's all I can think of!

Rough idle with check engine light

Usually a rough idle on a Honda is a result of the idle speed being too low. What is your RPM suring idle now. Try to increase it using the screw on the idle air control by only a quarter turn at a time. Hope this helps.

1992 honda accord stop running in middle of driving

When you turn the key to start, the engine cranks over? You must check for spark and fuel, if one is missing, the car won't run. Pull a spark plug, with plug wire connected and plug on a metal surface of the engine, have someone turn the key to start, while you watch for spark at the plug. It is easiest to see spark with car out of direct or bright light. If you have spark, attempt to start several times, pull a spark plug and check for evidence of fuel (wet) on plug. Let me know what you find, we can then continue.

Honda S2000 engine installed in kit car. How do I wire alternator

Unfortunately the Honda alternator is regulated by the ECU, which allows the ECU to intelligently reduce alternator engine loading to improve fuel consumption. The intelligent system uses an electrical load detector (ELD) located near the battery to control the alternator output voltage. A two wire alternator has an inbuilt regulator that will always generate the required charging voltage. When a battery is fully charged and the electrical loading is low there is no need for generating the charging voltage, in this situation the honda alternator will reduce the output voltage to reduce engine loading, hence improved fuel economy.
