Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Honda Civic 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 220000 miles
My car when first started makes a loud knocking sound. The oil light flickers. Once running for about 45 seconds or so the knocking silents as the oil light stops flickering. When driving the oil light flickers at idle and just seems to me not to be maintaining proper oil pressure. Does this sound like a failed oil pump? Maybe just an engine flush would fix this? I have to admit, I have been the sole owner of this car and oil changes have not been regular. Other then this problem the car runs great still. What should be my order of troubleshooting. If I could fix this myself I would.
have the same problem?
