Temperature range for 10w40 oil is 40 degrees to 100 and higher
Temperature range for 10w30 oil is 40 degrees to -20 degrees.
If it doesn't go below 40 for long periods of time, use the 10w40.
I only said that because the way the weather is going lately, anything is possible.

5W- 30 is the lowest you can go in winter time. I would use a high mileage formula since we're talking about a 1990 honda. It will help condition the seals in the motor from making any oil leaks worse.

There IS a reason it comes on. It isn't there for looks, it serves a purpose. Verify you have the right amount of oil. Make sure when the oil is changed it is the right viscosity and weight recommended by Honda (probably a 5W-30). When it's cold, the oil is thicker and harder to pump. So typically people in colder climates should run a lower weight oil in the winter (probably 5W30 in the winter, and 10W30 in the summer)

I have a Honda Accord 2001 it burnt the engine oil when ever i travel on a distance of 400miles but if its local running within town even if its covers 2000miles the engine oil will be as gage as it is....


can you specify what type of oil you use and the type of weather you drive in? the reason i ask is because normally for hondas the recommended viscocity is either 5w30 or in hot conditions 10w30 which is reasonable, but thicker is better in hot conditions. what happens, is that the oil gets to a certain temperature that it cannot hold it self together and begins to break down, which is why at longer distances it has a higher chance of breaking down. and the oil it self might not actually be getting burned. have you checked the oil physically? if im not mistaken, the gage on the car is not an oil level gauge, but rather an oil pressure gage. like i said earlier, after a certain temperature the oil begins to break down, meaning that it cannot hold the same amount of pressure which your car has to maintain in order to prevent a blown head gasket. pretty much, unless you have your oil light come on, which means the oil pressure in your engine has dropped too much, then dont worry about it too much. the best thing i could recommend is increasing your viscocity to 5w40 of you live in colder climates, or 10w40 if you live in a warmer climate. hope this helps, and if you need any questions, let me know

Should I use 10w30 or 10w40 oil


If you live in cold climate I would recommend 10w30 for winter use, it's a bit thinner and will start better. However if the truck is used hard, such as for towing loads I would use the 10w40. If you live in a warm climate I would use 10w40 all the time.
