The oil light may be defective, but make sure that you have enough oil pressure @ idle. It will not matter how much oil is in there if there is no pressure. If the pressure is low, it is either the oil pump, or the oil system is clogged up somewhere like at the pick up tube at the bottom of the engine block.
There is a solution that you can add to your oil to clean the system. You have to run it a few miles and change it.
Pressure increases with RPMs.
Good Luck.

My Alto VXR 2004 has a problem that its engine oil is getting lesser fast in quantity. I am using Zic A as engine oil.local car mechanic says engine weak he says gas kit and engine head problem


is is odometer reading?
all cars burn oil if driven real fast, at 80mph, lots.
what i need is ,
1: speeds driven. avg.
2: and what weight, oil , is it hot there, sure, then run 10w-40 oil.
3: how many liters of oil per miles.
some cars go for years, burning 1quart of oil per 3000 mile.s
1L/5000 km to 1L /1000 km. (new car to old)
even more. on older engines.
if the engine runs good, drive it and change oil more often.
check oil at every petrol fill up, and learn what your engine needs
all engine burn oil by design. its a fact.

do an engine compression test.
2 times wide open throttle.
on a warm engine
if lower that spec, 150psi?
then add 1 teaspoon, of oil to spark hole , see if compression rises
if it does, its rings are old.
post the numbers, if all are 150 or more , drive it like you stole it.
half joking there, but drive it. and change oil often and check oil levels
every fill up or every other (depends on reality)

GASKET.
post the compression test readings. only NUMBERS count.
we need numbers and engine size.

Oil pressure too low when engine is on working temperature and idles.engine was overhauled 1000 km ago and new oilpump installed


next time you change the oil use a quart of Lucus oil treatment inplace of one quart of oil. The oil is warmed up it loses viscosity so that is normal to have lower oil pressure. I use Lucus oil treatment along with Mobil 1 and my truck runs great with just a little higher oil pressure this makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Reset change oil light


hello, here is the instructions on how to reset the light

When the system has calculated that oil life has been diminished, it will indicate that an oil change is necessary. A CHANGE ENGINE OIL SOON message will come on. Change the engine oil as soon as possible within the next 600 miles (1000 km). It is possible that, if driving under the best conditions, the oil life may not indicate that an oil change is necessary for over a year. However, the engine oil and filter must be changed at least once a year and at this time the system must be reset.
If the system is ever reset accidentally, change the engine oil at 3000 miles (5000 km) since last oil change.
To reset the Engine Oil Life System, do the following:
  1. Turn the ignition to ON, with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds.
  3. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the CHANGE OIL lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  4. Turn the key to OFF.
If the CHANGE OIL lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

Engine oil leak


Personally, I think you may have suffered some engine damage. No matter how minor, I would definitely push to either have Honda give you a new car or at the least, replace the engine under your warranty. They will not want to but it is a factory defect. You don't say how long you drove it with the oil pressure light on, but usually when the light comes on the oil is waaaay low.

I assume you are not in the US (since you use km) so I do not know what legal recourse you have.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My 2005 Endeavor with 60000 km burns 1 litre of oil every 1000 km at highway speeds, about half that around town. Is this a normal occurrence or is there a problem with the motor?


Not normal, clean burning engine, mine has 220,000 kms's. Are you using a full synthetic oil? Tried it a couple times and it took 1 litre between oil changes. I use semi synthetic oil, no issues. How long has it been burning this amount of oil? Get to your dealer and have him fix your engine.

2002 Lancer OZ Rally...


I had the same problem with my 2003 Lancer OZ. The oil level and pressure were ok. Car was fine with no light when starting. After 10 to 15 mins of driving it would come on when I was stopped. It would go away when I pressed accelerator. Try replacing the Oil Sending Unit. It's about $10 and easy to swap. That was my problem.
