oil

  1. The 9th Generation
    Hi, hope everyone is safe and well. Since my car takes 4.4 ltr of oil and most of the commercial oils (including Honda) comes in 4 ltr package. I was wondering if it's possible to top the remaining 0.4 ltr with a different brand. I switched to 5w30 since the temperature here doesn't go below 15c...

    Hi! I just bought an accord 2015 coupe black manual, and here what I found when I pulled the oil dipstick.. Seems to have lot of rust, some pieces mixed with oil on the tip.. Is it just the oil tube? Any deeper issues I should look for? Thank you so much!

    I recently purchased a 2017 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Auto. I had heard about the oil dilution problems in the turbo engines but have read and heard that all Earth Dreams engines have this problem. I haven't been able to find any credible information that specifically identifies the V6 to have oil...

    I think I've find my Oil Leak issue. The black O-ring is pretty hard and flat but not cracked, is this causing the oil leak? Also, I changed plugs and 1 coil and a ton of oil was in the 2 cylinder. Oil dripping when the coil was pulled. I think it was an older issue with plug seals before I...

    Ok, I own both the 2017 hatch and 2018 accord sport same engine/turbo. During my first oil chg on the hatch I accidentally went over the top mark , no much but over. My RPMs immediately slowed when accelerating. Was almost like a different car. I drained below the top dot and car returned to...

    New Honda owner here. 2017 Accord LX CVT Sedan purchased new. I performed first oil change at just under 10,000 miles. MM @ 15%. Using Honda A01 Filtech Filter, Honda Ultimate Synthetic oil and new crush washer. BTW, A01 Filter was installed by Factory. I noticed two things: 1. The oil pan...

    So I've been running the OEM A01 filters for my 08 accord but wanted to know if there were any actual benefits to going to another top contending filter product such as Purolator. Anyone have experience with both of these filters at all ?

    I recently purchased a 2016 Accord LX. There were 11 miles on the odo at delivery, the car was originally inspected by the dealership in April 2016, and had been in the showroom for a while. 1. Is there any reason to change the oil right away, given that it's been sitting for over a year? I...

    Hello good evening, I have a Honda Accord 2006, 4 cylinders, 2.4, Automatic. I bought it about 5 months ago, it wants to make the change of the transmission oil, however apparently it currently has too much, it works well, you only hear a noise when changing from P to R, the doubt I have is if I...

    I decided to put a Fumoto oil drain valve on my 2010 Accord LX with manual transmission for convenience. The F106N valve screws in place of the oil drain plug without problem. There is no need for an extension adapter. While at it, I also decided to put Fumoto valves on the manual...

    I'm a new driver (10 months) and my 2005 Honda Accord hybrid is my first car. It started off with no issues whatsoever but in the past few months they've been coming in one after another! So first off, a couple months back my check engine light went on and I went to check the codes. The results...

    ok, so i will try to keep this as brief as possible. looking forward to finally figuring out the issue, if any. i received the car as a gift from my parents in 2012. about a month after receiving it, i was driving it and i was getting a strange sensation. almost a struggling. just as this...

    I have a new 2015 Accord 6spdMT LX with 14,500 miles on it. I made the mistake of changing the initial break in oil at 7.5K and 30% on MM instead of letting it run all the way to 10K, since the oil was really dark and I worry about sludge buildup. I switched to 5-30W even though the on the oil...

    i drive 2015 accord sport 4 cyl engine. My oil change light just came on, and its time for my second oil change. (first was free from dealer) I asked some people that i knew that owns shops and they were asking for 80$ for oil change with synthetic oil. Also thought about just going to MR.LUBE...

    Not sure how you guys judge Quaker State, but right now they have a $10 rebate going on for 5qt jugs of their Ultimate Durability oils. Combine that with the price at Wal-Mart now ($21.97) and you've got a full synthetic oil for less than Wal-Mart charges for their own SuperTech conventional...

    The owner's manual on my Accord V6 recommends 0W-20 oil. Is this a strictly synthetic oil or is it a synthetic/conventional oil blend? That oil is so thin and I'd rather use a slightly thicker oil like 5W-20 or 5W-30. Will this hurt the engine?
  17. The 6th Generation
    Hello everyone! I have an 02 Honda Accord ex running strong on 154k miles! I'm planning on changing the oil soon. What is the best oil to use for my car with that much mileage? Should I use Mobil 1 full synthetic 5-20 or something else? Also after some research I plan on using OEM oil filter...

    I have a 2002 Honda Accord LX with a 2.3L ULEV VTEC motor w/ 5 speed manual transmission. The car is lowered 3" on 17in rims. I have been having issues with the PO112 Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensor Low Input Circuit. I have replaced the IAT but I am still getting the same code. Im trying to...

    I have a 99 Accord EX V6 SOHC. I know that my valve cover gaskets are bad and I'm going to replace them myself, however.....I am getting cylinder misfire codes and I believe it's because there is oil dripping on my spark plugs. Should I replace or just clean off my spark plugs? They are only...

    This past weekend it was time to change the oil on my car. I have never done one on it before having bought it 3 months ago. I found out you can do a "topside" oil change, and on the 4-cylinder models, you can also change the oil filter from the top. This is how it is done (by design) on most...
