WHY IS MY OIL LIGHT ON?

1992 Acura Integra • 217,000 miles

My oil light is flashing but the pressure is fine I have a new sending unit and the bearings were replaced im assuming since the pressure is fine the pump is okay as well. What else should I check?

Put a manual gauge on this to make sure you have good pressure. Then if it's ok replace the pressure switch. This cold be a bad oil filter as they cause this sometimes.

While replacing the bearings, the oil strainer had to be removed. If you do not have sufficient pressure then that is where you should be looking at, the strainer and its gasket.
