  1. The DIY Garage RSX
    I did not know Amazon was making oil. Watched a couple of videos and it performed really well and is rated even higher than RedLine. Was just wondering if anyone has tried it and what your thoughts are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ye-5EyrwkOQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9DWGtXpYUc

    Hello all, to start off, I have a 2002 Rsx type-S with 86,000 miles. Completely stock. The car has been running Penzoil 5-30w conventional. My last oil change I switched it to Penzoil synthetic 5-30w. I checked the oil today and its pretty low, but very clean. I read and was told...
  3. Problems & Solutions RSX
    After much research, and much debate I've decided I have no idea which route to take. Synthetic or Non? I have used to SEARCH button a lot on this one, and I'm still not sure. My car is exposed to Extreme climates. I live in Arizona, it's routinely around 1(teens) in the summer, and gets below...
  4. The DIY Garage RSX
    I recently bought and 2004 base rsx with 69K miles on it. I have being getting this oil smell in 5800RPM, but I read on the forum that it may be normal for some cars. I notice that it needs half quarter of oil, but the problem is that I don't know which brand the previous owner used. Can I use...

  6. General RSX Discussion
    i recently bought an 03 type s and it currently has dino oil in it and zero leaks. I wouldn't mind going to synthetic at my next oil change since it will give me a longer change interval. from what I've read on here tho, synthetic can exploit existing leaks and essentially make them more...

  12. All Motor RSX
    Hey guys, oil change is upon me, and I've been meaning to ask this before I end up buying 5 quarts of the wrong grade. From what I've read, I believe standard oil and synthetic have a very different viscosity. So, me going out and grabbing 10w40 synthetic wouldn't be right, if what I believe is...

    Daily drivers living in the temperate regions of Earth (willing to bet that this includes 100% of CRSXers): Synthetic will NOT protect your engine any better than conventional oil if: 1. You don't race your car every time you drive. 2. You don't have extended oil change intervals, e.g. 15-20k...

  18. Problems & Solutions RSX
    As the title states. My oil consumption is getting out of control (ref). I spoke too soon in that thread, thicker oil didn't help. I'm burning 4 quarts every 8k miles, which is my oil change interval. At this rate, I am better off switching back to dino since I have to top it off so many gdamn...
  19. All Motor RSX
    I'm coming up to an oil change soon, and I've thought about trying synthetic oil. I have a 2002 RSX Type-S, oils always been changed every 2-3k miles. I've read synthetic is better for startups, can help out on gas mileage, and overall it's just better for the engine. I'm not sure if 150k is too...
