When was the engine oil replaced?

6weeks ago

Was the oil thick or any signs of sludge in the oil? I would recommend checking the oil pressure with a gauge because the oil pressure or a faulty oil pressure switch can cause this issue on the accord.

Good oil pressure no bad noises engine very quiet and running well fault only happens now and again

I am referring to the vtec oil pressure switch, this issue is quite common. Check the wiring and replace this switch if the switch wiring is fine.
