1996 Honda Accord Q&A
1996 Honda Accord Question: Oil light comes on going up mountain, fan motor on when stopped Radiator noise.
My wife says the oil light keeps coming on when going up a moutain. The fan motor stays on when she cuts the motor off for a few minutes and the Radiator makes a gurgeling sound after shutting car off. I checked the radiator fluid level, ok. Oil level is between the two holes on the dip stick. Normal level as far as I know. Work performed: New radiator & cap. New water pump & thermostat & timing belt, new head gasket & seals. New tune up kit with NGK plugs & plug wires & distributer cap and rotor. Still having same problem, oil light comes on going up mountian. - Toneclub

Sure it's the OIL light that's comming on? Just saying. - pushrod
Check wiring around the sending unit for damage (frayed & shorting to ground). If oil sender & wiring are all wet , I would start with replacing the sending unit as globalhelper stated. - ziptie12
