I'm not quite sure what you are trying to say here.

Yes, running the engine low on oil is bad and not good for the engine. I don't recommend this at all.

The first symptom, even before it gets low enough to trip the low oil pressure light, is that it fails to operate the VTEC system. Are you suggesting that he ignore a possible low oil level issue and go straight to spending money on parts that may not need to be replaced?
