    The problem was the oil pressure sending switch. $12 part. No more issues.....for now.

    Yeah, we're starting to see more new vehicles in the shop I work at with the new refrigerant. It required a whole new evacuation machine and the refrigerant is over $700 per tank. And it's less than half the size of the 30lb R134A tanks.

    2003 Accord. Whirring noise and oil light

    I'm thinking it's the switch. My thinking is that when the cyl head is cold everything is nice and tight. As it warms up the head expands and it leaks oil around that switch. After a thorough drive today I put a big piece of clean cardboard under the car. Sure enough there was oil drops in...

    I replaced the capacitor today. I believe it was a 5/35 per the factory spec. The old one wasn't bulged but very rusty. It was an affordable swap so figured I'd give it a shot. The fan was not running at all with the new capacitor. The wiring from the fan motor looks good. As do all the...

    My outdoor heat pump fan won't come on. When unit is off, the fan spins freely with a push of a paint stick. When on AC the fan binds up and won't push start. I already replaced the capacitor. I'm thinking I may need a new fan motor. It's an old unit but works great (other then the...

    2003 Accord. Whirring noise and oil light

    OK, so I've narrowed down the Whirring sound to the alternator. It has a lifetime warranty. I already have that getting swapped on Monday. I took it for a drive this morning. When cold, the oil light is off. Once warmed up it comes on and stays on. I'm having the pressure test done on...

    Does the chain operate the oil pump?

    2003 Accord. Whirring noise and oil light

    Ok, so my daughter has a 2003 Accord with the 2.4L VTEC 4 cyl engine. A few months ago her oil Pressure Switch went bad and I replaced it. The old one was causing the oil lamp to stay on. The replacement switch took care of that. BUT....now the lamp is back on as of last night, and there...
