a low oil level will throw a check engine light with vtec because... it uses oil pressure to activate the vtec soleinoid...

no when ur dealer told u to take it on a drive cycle it means a drive that activates ALL monitors... (the things that check the signal from ur engines sensors to make sure everthing is working correctly) but badly for u it takes 40 drive cycles without a error to clear the MIL now if u have a parts store around u can run down to them and they can clear ur mil light for free...

Or you can do it yourself by dicsonnecting the battery for about 15 seconds.

It takes it about 10 minutes to relearn.
