And when you need to top off your oil level.

Is both 0w-20 synthetic blend, or 0w-20 100 percent synthetic oil acceptable.

And can you use any brand, i.e. quaker state, mobil one, Valvoline, Honda brand.


Thanks.
What does your owner's manual say about that?

It's ok to use any brand, and any kind of oil as long as it's the correct grade (0w-20 or whatever your car uses)

It pretty much boils down to:

Use the factory-recommended viscosity of whatever reputable brand you like, and change when the maintenance minder tells you to.

Yes. That way, your fried eggs will be more tasty.

JK. It just means "It comes down to".

Some people get so upset over oil. Being new to this I just get more confused. So poking a little fun, even at my self and my dumb questions.

Oil changes are often a controversial topic. You can go to bobistheoilguy website and read up on various opinions and analysis. They also cover motorcycles, etc.

Here is a great video showing the benefits of synthetic vs conventional oil.

Good Day: I bought a New left-over '17 Accord Touring V6 last night. Looks like late production, arrived at the Dealer on Aug.17th. Picking it up today. Dealer told me a few things, and I said HMM

Per them: Accord V6 has 0W-20 Full Synthetic from the factory. That is all they use, Honda brand. Their deal:

Lube, Full Synthetic Oil, Filter, top off the fluids, Ck. the Tire pressure and Rotate the tires, Car wash. $ 69.99. Sounds like a decent deal. First one on them.

0W-20?? I'm in Cali, doesn't get real cold here. Everybody stick with that viscosity??

Is it really all synthetic??

I usually change around 3,000, then every 4,000-5,000, utilizing reg. oil. Syn. Blend of Full Synthetic can go longer of course. Looking forward to learning about the car... Thanx..

Congrats!

Oil brand doesn't matter much, as long as it's from a reputable brand(Pennzoil, Mobil 1, Castrol, etc.). Honda doesn't make engine oil themself, they source it from other oil manufacturers.

0W oils are considered full synthetics, and yes, 9th Gen owners generally all follow that viscosity without trouble.

As to when to change oil, just follow the maintenance minder and oil life indicator. 3000-mile oil changes are for classic hot rods and rotary engines, not a new Honda.

Sent via MHA-L29. Whatever.

What they said above. Just don't get hung up on a magical number like 10,000 as my car is 0% at about 6K miles. Only real issue you may have is claiming an oil warranty with AMSOIL because you have their product mixed with whatever you topped off with in the UOA kit they sent you. Mobil 1 and Royal Purple oil warranty, good luck with that. Mobil 1 pretty much claims a false
optimistic mileage interval then follows up with (*) don't tow, race, idle or exceed the OCI set by your manufacturer.

In short it's too soon to worry about claiming an oil warranty on a brand new 9.5 Accord, lots of things had to have gone wrong to need it. Having oil is better than no oil.
