  5. Problems & Solutions RSX
    This is not necessarily a problem but a question about engine oil. I have a 04 base auto and on my oil cap it says to use 5w-20. I hear from the forums and from friends talk about royal purple so I decided to look into it and now since im almost due for a oil change at 3000. Ive been using...
  6. Transmission & Drive Train RSX
    Hello all, I just got my 2006 NBP Type-S 9 days ago. I was noticing today that on the top left portion of the windshield where your 'oil change' sticker goes, that they put 5W-20 oil in this car! Now I on my base I used this oil but i'm pretty sure that for a Type-S you are supposed to use 5W-30...
  7. Problems & Solutions RSX
    I'll keep this short and simple. I have an '02 RSX-S. I went to the Honda dealer today for an oil change, and they put Mobil 1 Synthetic 5W-20 instead of the recommended 5W-30. I didn't realize it until I got home and looked at the invoice. Is this a big deal? Thanks.
  8. General RSX Discussion
    Been running 5w-30 in my base model from 15k to 65k. Thinking about going to 5w-20 on this oil change. I'm religious with 3k changes, and have been running Castrol Syntec. By recommendation I'd been running the 30 weight, and now I'm wondering if switching over after this many miles will cause...

  11. Bolt-On Basics: RSX (Base)
    Just got my car back from service, dealer said nada to using Mobil 1 5W30 syn bacause of warranty concerns...I won't take the chance. The only 5W20 syn I can find locally is Quaker State. Any body use? Still has to be superior to non synthetic? Just got oil change so if I change out for this...
  12. Car Care RSX
    I just got my hands on the press kit for the new 2003 Accord.....guess what....5W-20 oil for both the 4-banger and the V6. Guess the RSX was just the start.
  13. Car Care RSX
    Okay...so it seems Honda is trying to tweek their ratings by going with 5W20 oil on the base and premium RSX. Anyone out there with the 160 HP engine tried switching to 5W30? Is there any noticeable difference in engine smoothness or fuel economy?
