Hi, Gene you may have air in the system try bleeding it out like you would for brakes by loosening the oil pressure switch or oil filter with the engine running and watch for bubbles when they stop re-tighten and your good to go, for more information about your question and valuable "FREE" downloads that you will need please click on the links below.

Oil light comes on and blinks then goes off . sometimes doesn't come on at all for a couple of days. It never comes on and stays constant red.

Have you checked your oil level? This light indicates either an oil level problem or an oil pressure problem.

My oil pressure stays at 40 but once i drive for a while it drops were the red light come on when at a red light

Warning - your engine is not producing enough oil pressure and is at great risk of internal damage ($$$$$). Is the car high mileage? Is the oil level where it is supposed to be? How long since the last oil change?

Red light

if the oil light is staying on it could be one of many things ,it could be a very cheap oil presure switch or something very expensive if it is an oil pump failure.start with doing an oil presure test . presure should be 14 to 57psi(2.0to5.0bar)@3000rpm. oil at 60c
if all is ok check cable going to switch for breaks or touching frame and shorting out,if thats all ok next change oil presure switch . if the test do not produce the results to spec then the right hand side off engine will need be striped down to replace the oil pump and inspect the internal engine componants for oil starvation damege which could result in a complete engine overhaul. i would not be using the bike until repaired. engine seizer can result in an accident.

1984 New Yorker 2.2 Turbo oil pressure low on ilde

I think you have a suspect oil pressure sender unit. Replace it as they are cheap and need to be reliable and it will be cheaper than getting the oil pressure tested. If the light still stays on with the new sender you may have internal wear or a partial blockage. If the light stays on you need to have it urgently checked by a mechanic or you could risk serious engine damage.

Maintenance Required Indicator is RED. I tried resetting this but it still stays red. I have resetted this before and it would turn green. But this time it stays red. What does that light indicate anyway?...

yes, this is an indication that is instructing you to change the oil. the constancy of the oil is thinning. these Hondas have a very sophisticated oil system sensory module. it will tell you if the oil is to thin. very cool system.
