My 97 CE takes 5W-30...it should be marked on top of the oil filler cap on top of the engine.

What climate do you live in? If you're in a year round warm climate, like I am, I'd suggest running with 10W40 or even 20W50. It gives your engine more protection. As noted, make sure you don't mix synthetic and conventional oils.

NORMALLY THEY TAKE 10W-30 MOTOR OIL. BUT MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON'T SWITCH FROM CONVENTIONAL TO SYNTHETIC, AND VISE VERSA. IF YOUR CAR HAS BEEN CHANGED TO FULL SYNTHETIC OIL THEN DO NOT USE CONVENTIONAL OIL. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

Leaking oil was told it had an upper and lower oil pan is this correct? Was told in order to repair upper pan , engine needed to come out, this sounds extreme. what can be done to fix the problem?


to examine this firstly buy some degreaser, clean the engine so the location of the leak can be pin pointed, take it to anothe mechanic for a second opinion {always the wiser move}, always into saving money. Good luck

Oil filter in civic 97


If you go to a reputable motor factor,
you can only be sold the correct filter for the civic.
As there are soo many variables in engine type, it's almost impossible to tell, oil volume, or which type filter.
However, I will say, be sure that you don't mix semi-synthetic oil, and mineral oil.
Oil changes should be undertaken every 30,000 miles, (unless under extra work load, (in which case, slightly more regularly))

Otherwise, 10/40 or 15/40 grade oil, is perfectly fine.
The trick to not overfilling the oil, is simply just to take your time, clean the dip stick and retry, until you have the correct reading.
