Question about 1986 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Type of engine oil

I bought SAE 5W-30 high mileage engine oil for my 1986 Honda Accord and the owners manual said to use SE or SF grade only. I was wondering if using this type of oil will damage my engine?

No .. the SE and SF grades are obsolete .. The use of 5W verses 10W is that the 5W is lighter viscosity oil

My honda accord ex 91 is running exellent since i changed the ignition wires and spurk plugs. it has 107,000 miles, manual transmision. for more power and gas saving, what kind oil motor and gas should i...


With that many miles there is no point in putting synthetic oil in the engine because it will probably be too thin and cause the seals to start leaking. Keep the oil changed regularly (every 3000 miles) and use a brand name 5W-30 grade oil like Mobil1 or castrol. As far as gas goes I would put a tank of high octane gas in about once a month. You can try using high octane all the time but check your mileage per tank on the regular grade and then after you've filled you car about 4-5 times with high grade so you can see if it really is making a difference. Also check your owners manual to see if it recommends higher grade gasoline.

We have five recomendation for you. Out of this, SYNTEC oils are most recommended for your vehicles. CASTROL EDGE, SAE 5W-30 PI*, SL 5W-30 - an advanced proprietary formula that provides performance and protection in extreme conditions such as towing, hauling, high and low temperatures, rapid acceleration and stop and go traffic. CASTROL GTX HIGH MILEAGE, SAE 5W-30 PI*, SL 5W-30 - CASTROL GTX high mileage - helps extend the life of your engine. CASTROL GTX, SAE 5W-30 PI*, SL 5W-30 - `superior sludge protection. CASTROL GTX exceeds demanding U.S. high shear and stay-in-grade requirements for viscosity breakdown protection. CASTROL SYNTEC BLEND, SAE 5W-30 PI*, SL 5W-30 - CASTROL SYNTEC blend - CASTROL SYNTEC blend is specially engineered with proprietary CASTROL GTX technology and CASTROL SYNTEC molecular components to provide superior short?trip protection*. * 5W30 AND 10W30 ONLY CASTROL SYNTEC, SAE 5W-30 PI*, SL 5W-30 - IN extreme tests, CASTROL SYNTEC 5W-30 maintains maximum horsepower longer than the leading conventional oil.

Hello, I have accord 2003 2.4l with 99,000 mileage and what kind grade oil i should use? Right now I am using 5w-30.


Oil Viscosity In addition to meeting the SH or SJ classification of the American Petroleum Institute, your oil should be of a viscosity suitable for the outside temperature in which you'll be driving. Oil must be thin enough to get between the close tolerances of the moving parts it must lubricate. Once there, it must be thick enough to separate them with a slippery oil film. If the oil is too thin it won't separate the parts, if it's too thick it can't squeeze between them in the first place either way, excess friction and wear takes place. To complicate matters, cold-morning starts require thin oil to reduce engine resistance, while high-speed driving requires thick oil, which can lubricate vital engine parts at temperatures up to 250°F (121°C). According to the Society of Automotive Engineers' viscosity classification system, an oil with a high viscosity number (e.g., 40) will be thicker than one with a lower number (e.g., l0W). The "W" in l0W indicates that the oil is desirable for use in winter driving. Using special additives, multiple-viscosity oils are available to combine easy starting at cold temperatures with engine protection at turnpike speeds. For example, 10W-40 oil will have the viscosity of l0W oil when the engine is cold and that of 40 oil when the engine is warm. The use of such oil will decrease engine resistance and improve your gas mileage during short trips in which the oil doesn't have a chance to warm up. Some of the more popular multiple-viscosity oils are 5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40, 20W-50, and 5W-50. Consult your owner's manual or a reputable oil dealer for the recommended viscosity range for your vehicle and the outside temperature in which it operates.

I Don't know what type of oil to put in my 1992 honda accord


This is right from the owner's manual: Recommended Engine Oil: API Premium grade 5W-20 detergent oil . 5W-20 oil is formulated for yearround protection of your Honda, to improve cold weather starting, and to help your engine use less fuel. If 5W-20 oil is not available, a 5W-30 oil may be used. However, it should be replaced with 5W-20 at the next oil change. ---------- for more help in how to change oil and oil filter in your Honda car please click the link below. https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/pubs/om/AC0202/AC0202O00250A.pdf Thanks.

I don't have the book for my car. What type of


I have a 96 accord, same motor, my recommendations on this model are 2 different kinds, 5w-30 or 10w-30. the 5W-30 is the preferred. as for which brand, I choose to go with Penzoil synthetic or synthetic blend. both are a little more expensive than regular oil. Castrol is another great choice and Valvoline has a high mileage oil out on the market. Stick with a 5W-30 and choose your brand. Good Luck!
