Machineries with oil level sensors tends to give you problem as the float inside would stuck after times...
just disconnect the yellow wire,the one connected to the sensors,and please check your oil level manually before each start..
i had found so many of them having this kind of problem...

i have never bothered to change onebecause you need to strip the motor,that is not realy such a big job if you have done a few ,but you just need to check the oil when you fill the gas tank , thatis simple enough . the oil alert is realy a gimmick for the dummies, it only takes 10 secs. to chech the oil manually

Honda GX160 runs fine for 5 minutes then dies like out of fuel.


I would look for the fuel filter. Blow it our. I know you have a new tank of gas, but you might want to empty it out and make sure the clean and put in new. Even with Stabil in the gas you might just have to much condensation in the tank

Honda 5.5 hp air comp. no spark wont run


Most honda engines have an oil sensor that prevents the engine from starting if the oil level is low or oil is dirty. Test coil by disconnecting oil sensor wire. With sensor disconnected coil should fire. If still no fire, check kill wire for short. If still no spark, coil may need to be replaced. enjoy
