Re: 1993 Civic EX not getting oil to the oil filter

it could be normaly for it to be not filled with oil depending on many things. the only thing that will prevent oil to getting to the oil filter would probably be the oil pick up. take your oil pan off and clean out the oil pickup and also put a new gasket there (if it exists). that thing is probably clogged if oil was just chillin in there for 7 years.
