You better stop at auto zone or the closest gas
Station because this car is EMPTY ON OIL.

ON.

The oil-life percentage has nothing to do with the amount of oil in the engine. I think that's explained in the manual.

The oil level should be checked regularly with the dipstick. That's the same as pretty much every car out there.

If it has a bad coil pack its no biggie. The pack/coil just needs to be changed and you will be good. Honestly (I am assuming it is a 4 cyl as I dont see a 6 running on 3 cyl) you could have changed the coil pack out in the parking lot of a parts store in about 5 min and been on your way to work.

as far as all the other lights that is odd. I would have the battery checked ( I dont know that hondas do this, but chevy's are bad about having lights come on and systems stop working when the batteries get weak). And if the battery is good I would unhook it for 10 or so minutes and try to reset the computer.

Yup, I agree 100%. Also it might not be a battery, but rather an alternator on it's way out.
