Hi all.

Have a few issues with my project. Will make a full post about my car as soon as it is finished.

After I had the fd2 pump installed (oil and new oil filter at the same time) I have encountered this small issue. If I do not push the gas enough when moving from standing position I get the oil pressure beep and display warning for a split second and its gone again. The oil level is ok. This was causing me no bother, everything worked fine so never did anything about it.


My 2nd problem is maybe or maybe not related to this. I used to run it stock, then the group N map with vtec at 3800 and then the car went for a proper map. Everything seemed to be fine to start with. Happy with the result on my way home the engine went to the safe mode and had to go back to the garage. After this was fixed my vtec started to kick in in random rpms 4k, 4.5k, sometimes 5k. Seems to be different in every gear. Can see the ecu switching at 3800 as the the light goes on but the vtec does not engage and engages later. Tried even going back to the base map and the group N map and it is still the same. Makes me thinking it must be mechanical. Also would it be worthwile to get my map checked if everything is as it should be? Guy was trying to adjust how much do I need to push the gas pedal to engage vtec so maybe did something wrong? What things could I do or change that can influence this? Thanks in advance for all the answers

both seem oil related. when was the car last serviced and also using the correct grade and recommended oil. I believe the vtec mesh filter is also worth a check.

EDIT - Just read it was replaced same time as the pump :)

Oil is less tham 2 months old same as the filter. 5w40 fuchs titan pro s. Hamp filter. Heard about cleaning the solenoid. Told my mechanic to check it but he said the bolts on the solenoid are rusted and seized so he would break it while removing. This will be only my last solution as I really dont wanna break a part that could have nothing wrong with it.

From what you described I think is related to FD2 oil pump and oil pressure. My suggestion is to check :

- are you sure the pump was fine ? no problems on it ?
- if the pump has been installed correctly - see this link, posts #82, #83 and #84 : http://www.civinfo.com/forum/type-r/34796-fd2-oil-pump-5.html.
Also on post #82 you'll find a .pdf with installation instruction and the bolt that is needed in order to have correct oil pressure. A friend of mine had this problem and this was the culprit, he didn't had that bolt. After that everything was fine.
- oil level because FD2 oil pump require 0,5 ml of extra oil if I remember correctly
- new dipstick (FD2 one) also needed to see accurate oil level

Thanks GUR. Will get my mechanic to have a look at this. They never done anything like it before so there is every chance they have not added the bolt. My question is where can I get one? :)
