Why would the oil light stay on?


That depends on the type of oil warning light being displayed. There are 2 types of warning lights

1. Low oil pressure light which all cars have
2. low oil level light which some cars have.

Low OIL PRESSURE warning means the oil pressure is below minimum and when this happens there will be insufficient lubrication of many engine parts because sufficient oil cannot get to all parts of the engine it is required to lubricate. Until the cause is identified and rectified the warning light will remain. If you run your engine with low oil pressure you will cause expensive damage to internal engine components.

Low OIL LEVEL warning means the oil in the sump has dropped to a dangerously low level (which may be due to an oil leak or abnormal oil consumption by the engine.) This warning means the oil level needs to be topped up and the warning will stay displayed until you top up the oil. Running the engine with low oil will cause expensive engine damage.
Since it is a 2 minute job, Oil levels should be checked fortnightly as a minimum, together with radiator coolant and power steering fluid levels, if you run the car most days each week as most people do.

It is possible for a warning light to remain displayed when the cause has been dealt with because there is a problem with the sender unit. However it needs to be established with alternative checks that the problem has been fixed before investigating if there is a problem with the warning light itself.

If oil is low will it affect starting? is there a kill switch


Honda engines originally fitted the low oil level kill switch which some other manufacturers have copied so yes a low oil level could affect starting but only if your mower engine is fitted with a low oil level kill switch. Not all engines have the switch and in an ideal world the facility would not be needed...

Low presure oil


first thing check is the engine oil level.if oil level okay check oil pressure should be for the 4.2 engine oil pressure should be 12 psi @ 1200 rpm for the 5.3 oil pressure should be 18 psi @ 2000 rpm if oil pressure good problem in the oil pressure sending unit. if oil pressure is low problem faulty oil pump or worn crankshaft bearings if oil pressure low engine will have rod knock.make sure you are using correct oil viscosity if oil too thick you will have low oil pressure oil too thin you will loose oil pressure.

2005 grand Prix oil pressure light an dinging comes on


1. Check your oil level. If oil level is not ok, correct oil level and find out why oil level was low and correct the problem. (Leaks, bad PCV, Burning oil due to severe engine wear, nobody has bothered to check it for the last 3000 miles, WAY overdue for an oil change, etc.) If oil level is ok, proceed to next step.

2. Remove the oil pressure sensor and install a manual oil pressure gauge. Run engine to verify low oil pressure. If gauge shows that the oil pressure is low, overhaul or replace engine. If oil pressure is ok, replace oil pressure sending unit and retest.

My Honda Accord 1996 Vtec Engine Oil Short after i travelled long distance


If you are saying your oil level is low, then you need to add oil to your engine. If you are concerned that the oil level was low after your long drive, it would depend on how long it has been since you added oil or even checked your oil level.Engines will consume oil over a long period of time. Especially if the oil is not changed according to manufacturers recommendations. Unless the low oil level was sudden I would not be concerned. If it happened suddenly and in a short period of time, look for an oil leak of indication of the engine burning the oil, such as smoke at the exhaust pipe.

I have a eu2000i honda generator and will not start, for i am not getting any spark up to plug, it was running before I changed the oil, now I can't get no spark


Hi and welcome to Fixya. I am Kelly.

The key words here are I just changed the oil. The engine has an oil level sensor that will kill the spark if it does not sense that there is enough oil in the engine.

First... re-check the oil level.

2nd... Make sure that the 2 wires on the LOW Oil Lever Sensor assy are totally connected.

After re-verifying the oil level is correct, the LOW Oil Level Sensor is installed and properly connected.... Check for spark once again.

If you still do not have spark then:
Disconnect ONE wire from the LOW Oil Level Sensor and check for spark again. You should have spark.

If you do have spark remove the LOW oil sensor and clean it with fresh oil. If you have an oiler squirt it in the holes on the side of the LOW Oil Level Sensor

(The LOW Oil Level Sensor will be on the side of the crank case of the engine. Usually on opposite side of the engine as the Oil fill hole / dip stick.)

I think this will get you going again but if not just respond via comments and we will get back to you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Kelly
