02 honda accord oil

Postby Gardalkree В» 15.03.2020

Norwich, Philip William, b.

The mechanic put 10W oil in the car last time. I read in the handbook it should be 5W What oil should be used in Central Iowa? Also when it comes to the radiator and the Automatic Transmission should the mechanic be using Honda products?

The radiator makes me nervous, usually mechanics will put in the Honda conditioner. Where I live they think anything but Honda is good enough! Steven answered 11 years ago. Adam answered 11 years ago. Honestly I don't know the specifics. Can't remember at the moment if it was Hondas or another maker, but there are a couple of people here who are Honda techs, hopefully they can either say I'm wrong or give rhyme to the reason.

As for the oil you should keep with the manufacturer recommend oil until the rings have worn, to where it starts to burn oil, before you start jumping up weights. Some will say do it at 50k, others 75k, others still will say never go against the recommendation. It's kinda a judgement call, but if you keep up on the changes it should never become an issue. On another page in your manual it'll likely have a chart telling you what weight oil to use at various temperatures, which will take care of your Iowa specific question.

If you have your manual, you should already have all the information you need. Should tell you lubricant types and specify what manufacturer requirements are needed. John answered 11 years ago. On Hondas you want to use the dealer atf and power steering fluid or one marked as meeting the specs. Honda uses a different mix of friction modifiers in their atf and power steering fluids.

David answered 11 years ago. Hello, I would not use the 10W30 oil. The car is designed to use 5W Also, be careful adding and changing coolant.

If you have the extended life, or , mile coolant it is usually red or clean, not green , then you need to continue to use the extended life. The green coolant is highly corosive to aluminum, which your radiator and engine is made of. Aaron answered 11 years ago. Kiwi59 answered 11 years ago. Thank you everyone, although lots of differing opinions I'm inclined to go with Aaron.

This is a SW 6cyl and has done 70, miles. Have owned two other Honda Accords and a Civic but in NZ and every mechanic we had alwas bought the Honda certified oils, coolants and water conditioner for radiator. American dealers here in Iowa don't appear interested in following the manufacturers recommendations and just put the equivalent.

However I did notice the difference in oil and it all worries me that not following directions. Just want to keep this car the same way as my others have been kept and they just kept on going for a long time without problems. ShelbyBob answered 6 years ago. Honda and Acura engines are machined at very tight tolerances. It is extremely important to always have adequate lubrication. If you have a Honda or Acura that calls for 5w20, then only use 5w20 motor oil.

Ryan answered 6 years ago. Sophia answered 5 years ago. Kevin answered 5 years ago. Have a Accord V6,auto trans, , miles, only Rotella 5w20 changed every 10k miles, Honda Trans fluid only, every 12k miles. Mostafa answered 4 years ago. Metri answered 4 years ago. I have a honda accord right hand drive and i am about to do a service on it. A 'chain' just changed the oil in my daughter's 99 and used 10W30 and needless to say - it now needs a new Solenoid. I'm going after the 'chain' to pay for the replacement costs.

You'd think they'd know what they were doing. The viscosity of the oil is supposed to channge according to the mileage on the motor, i understand that a new car is supposed to use a 0W but i don't think that oncce you reach 70,, miles you should use the same viscosity oil. It would be good to hear from a certified mechanich about this topic.

Chandu answered 2 years ago. I've Honda Accord its recommended to use 5W but my mechanic told me to use 10W Is it okay using 10W Its has , miles on it. Please suggest me which oil do I need to use?? Guru5XC7K answered 2 years ago. It has nothing to do with mileage. Enaz Noslen. Guru5Q1X1 answered 2 years ago. Always use what the car mfg.

Using other fluids will NOT lubricate as well as they should and will cause premature failure. If a service facility is trying to sell you anything other than what the mfg. I do my own changes and have had no problems and they all run great. Add a can of Lucas fuel treatment wal-mart good price into your gas tank once a month. It is safe for your vehicles and does a great job cleaning injectors. Will save a big repair bill later on. Leftlane70 answered 2 years ago.

I finally figured out the difference if you run or you're on the interstate a lot and your hard on the pedal where are you downshift to gain speed to go around cars or you get to slow down and then you run it up to RPMs before you let it shift you get a lot more Blow by which causes oil loss because and will you evaporate under high heat if you run which is what it calls for does not evaporate under them conditions I've also tried using for a diesel it does the same thing as regular evaporates I wouldn't dare think about using diesel oil but you get the point LOL.

Welly answered about a year ago. I'm going with the Honda engineer the manufacturer won't steer you in the wrong way so this is just common sense,why use something else that the manufacturer didn't suggest.. T answered about a year ago. Upgrade into 5w20 instead. Some latest Honda models have issue with the VTC actuators.

Replace with Full synthetic will fix this problem. And don't ever have the Honda dealers change oil in your Honda. They usually replace with regular engine oil. Douglas answered about a year ago.

I've used a quart of 0w20 synthetic oil between oil change, my car is burning off some, but not out the tailpipe. I have Honda with 2.

Can I safely use this 0w20 oil in my car? Use 2. You can replace the engine oil at home or if you go to the dealership, bring your full synthetic oil with you. Honda i4 engines don't seem to like any viscosity thicker than 5w You will notice that is any thicker than 5w20 will make a kickback on your vehicle, or your i4 Honda acceleration is slower. GuruC4Z58 answered about a year ago. GuruHM answered 3 weeks ago. Guru6G44C answered 2 weeks ago. Yes thicker oil might help ONE issue but will stress out other components a lot faster than normal.

Also when it comes to the radiator and the Automatic Transmissio I just got an oil change at just tires. The engine has , miles on it. According to the paper work they put 5 quarts of 5w20 motor oil in it.

The owners manual recommends 5w Is that going to be I have a Honda Accord LX at miles. The owner's manual says that I should replace engine oil every 5, miles 8, km or every 6 months.

Locate the hood release latch under the hood. Used Cars for Sale. Use a box end wrench to loosen the 17 mm hex oil drain plug located at the back of the oil pan, facing the rear of the car.

Using other fluids will NOT lubricate as well as they should and will cause premature failure. Make sure to use 5W here. While the oil is draining, wipe down the drain plug with a clean accors or towel and remove the drain plug gasket.

Remove the jack from under the car. Since the jacking location on the Accord isn't large enough to fit both a jack and a jack stand, you must raise the car by placing the jack on the front subframe. Good for me thank you very much.
