Honda Repair/oil pressure switch

Question
If the oil pressure switch is bad does it stop oil from flowing through the motor?

Answer
No, oil will still flow through the motor. You may have an oil light on or it may show no pressure, but the oil will still be flowing.

I would still recommend getting this replaced asap as it is a safeguard to let you know if you lose oil pressure in your engine. If that happens it would most likely ruin the engine.

I hope this helps.
