All of a sudden the check engine light started coming on about 2,500 miles after each oil change, and I was told the oil level is low due to oil consumption. The low oil light never came on though. The dipstick shows the oil is certainly low.
Oil light comes on when stopped and rpm gets low , I can give it a little gas and oil light cuts off! Help me figure what it might be . Oil level is good, car runs fine!
Check Engine light came on Saturday, knew I had last oil change about 3000 miles ago, and that it does use it up by that time. Went and got Oil changed, but Check Engine Light stayed on. Went to Dealer, they asked about the oil level, and reset the light. It stayed clear, and now I'll check my oil every 1000 to see how it does.
engine uses one quart of oil after 150 miles approx. PCV valve and hose ok, no obvious oil leaks and no smoke in the exhaust. Check Engine Light came on after oil was down to 2 quarts low. Reset Ck Engine light and added oil, light stayed off.
1999 accords seem to run through oil very fast. The oil light almost never seems to come on in most cases, but the check engine light with come on instead. The engine pressure gets low when the oil gets low. This can cause the engine light to display and The engine gives a code of p1259
I was running on a low engine oil for almost 10 days and initially it was just that wrench light and subsequently the Check engine light was on. I checked with the Honda dealership and they did a diagnostic scan and they figured out nothing major and it was due to low oil level. However, had I continued with the low oil for some more time, it would have been a major issue. They resent the codes without any additional cost.
