The 2006 Honda Odyssey used a 3.5L V6 engine across all trim levels. They did use two different types of 3.5L engines but thankfully they both have the same oil capacity and type. The capacity will be 4.5 US quarts and the type will be either 5W-20 or 0W-20 synthetic. You can use either oil type and they will both work great in this van.
FAQ what type of oil for 2006 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 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.
What kind of oil to run in the ODY?
Increasing oil weight is not the boogey man many make. I would be ok with running a Euro Spec 5w-40 in the Ody. 10w-40 would probably be ok to, if you have a real reason to use it.
Is a higher viscosity oil better for a 96 accord?
Unless the engine is extremely worn, as is your 96 Accord, and maybe flashes an oil light once in a while, I wouldn’t go with a higher viscosity oil. 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.
