My honda civic ima engine eml staying on due to oil pressure too high

Either your using the incorrect oil for the vehicle or the sensor is defective or there is a blockage in the in the oil galleries. If possible determine what type of oil was used last oil change(use the oil the manufacturer recommends for better temperature properties eg 5w-30 or 0w30 for low temperatures). If you can not determine what type of oil was used, have the vehicles oil pressure checked with a pressure gauge, this way you can determine whether its the sensor, or blockage and you know the true oil pressure your vehicle is producing cause this test bypasses the sensor. Then if its a bad sensor replace it. Blockage could be a lot more detailed. Other than a bad or clogged oil filter clearing out clogged galleries correctly involves a little bit of surgery. Let me know the results of the pressure test and we will take it from there. I'm hoping its a simple incorrect oil type for the season. good luck.

Just bought 02 GC sport, no manual, what type of oil should I use, it's 1 qt. low?

10W - 30 High Detergent -- any reputable brand. Since you don't know what type of oil is in it (synthetic, for example) -- I suggest an oil & filter change, and use that oil for future topping off and oil changes.

I would like to know if i can mixed synthetic oil to a regular diesel oil in my car engine..

there is not much of a problem with that. i know lots of people do that. they say it is cheaper, but really it is not very good for the engine to have mixed oils in it. it can mess up the engine and some of the sensors. i would not recommand that you should do that.
