Pfboyd is right. The old school thinking was that the thicker the oil, the better it is for the bearings. But, the car makers are doing a much better job of building motors to spec, and the oil quality has made considerable strides as well. I would not hesitate to use the recomended oil viscosity from the manufacturer.

You want to use the 5w20 for best fuel efficiency and easier cold starts especially in bc. multiweight oil has made great strides in the years past. also synthetic oil is a good alternative but you should also use the manufacturer's recommended viscosity. the thinner oil also allows better lubrication on smaller passageways.

What kind of transmission fluid do i need for honda accord 95 ex auto, they dont have dexron II available anymore? thanks


You can use the latest version of Dexron/Mercon (IV, V). All these will work just fine and not cause any damage and will mix with the old.

You may have a cracked head, block or blown head gasket that is leaking combustion gas into the cooling system. If you dont have a combution leak detector kit you can take it to a trusted mechanic tell them the problems you've had and the parts you've replaced. Ask them to check for a combustion leak in the cooling system. A minor combustion leak in the cooling system can sometimes mimic the symptoms of overheating.

Honda accord 1992 I have a oil leak around the oil filter is it


is it an ex?
is it a bad leak?
it could be 2 things
1) oil pressure sending unit above the filter
2) "o" ring between the oil cooler and block on ex models only. the oil cooler is between the filter and block with 2 coolant hoses attached to it. also might be the oil filter. i replace alot of sending units and oil cooler o rings.
