Question about 1996 Honda Civic
The oil light is generally an indicator that you are low on oil ... if your engine is burning oil, you should check the system for leaks (is there black sludge on your engine, does it smoke while running, does it blow smoke out the tail pipe, etc). when the light comes on, check your oil level ... if it is still full, you might have a faulty sensor. if there is oil on the top half of the engine, you probably need a valve-cover gasket replacement. If there is a pool of oil under your car when you park it there are three things it could be: 1. You have a leak in your oil system, and it is leaking out of the hoses ... bring it in for service (mechanics have an additive that they can put in your oil that glows in blacklight, which helps to find a leak) 2. You have a bad seal on your oil pan -- get it replaced and you should be fine 3. your drain plug bolt on your oil pan is loose -- tighten it up and make sure your oil is full and you will be fine.
