FAQ type of oil for 2012 honda odyssey

What type of oil do you use in your 2007 Honda Ody?

I understand Honda officially recommends 5W-20 for my 2007 Ody, but I plan to switch it to 10W-40 Synthetic on my next oil change. I have never felt comfortable to go below 10W-30 on any of my vehicles. I use 20W-50 in my 1996 Accord which currently registers 322K miles and counting.

Can I use synthetic oil in my Odyssey?

I checked into purchasing oil for our new Odyssey. According to the manual…"Honda Motor Oil is the preferred 0W-20 lubricant for your vehicle." Then later on it says "You may use a synthetic motor oil if it meets the same requirements given for a conventional motor oil: it displays the API Certification Seal,and it is the proper weight."

Can I use synthetic motor oil in my Honda?

Then later on it says "You may use a synthetic motor oil if it meets the same requirements given for a conventional motor oil: it displays the API Certification Seal,and it is the proper weight." This implies to me that Honda prefers conventional motor oil but tolerates synthetic oil.

Can I use 5W-20 oil in my Ody?

The tight bearing clearances aren’t built to tolerate the higher viscosity. When the engine gets very worn then the clearances are bigger and the higher viscosity oil is often a good idea. I’d stick with the 5w-20 on the Ody. If you have 0w-20 that’s ok too.
