Oil Change?

I just purchased my prelude 1999 type sh and the previous owner changed with regular 5w30. Is it ok if I switch to synthetic or should I keep using regular?

Re: Oil Change?

If the car has high miles I would definitely stick with regular. If not you can go to synthetic but I don't recommend it, I use regular 5w30 and get my oil changed every 3months/3k miles. Many people on here do use synthetic though.

I would not, I heard when you go to synthetic you can't really go back, I just wouldn't even risk it, regular oil is fine and does its job, just don't buy the cheapest oil out there of course

Re: Oil Change?

Anything you've heard about switching to synthetic from conventional is a load of sh!t. It is perfectly fine to do so. It won't cause your car to spontaneously combust, or cause horrible uncontrollable leaks, or anything like that. It's an old wives tale, probably propagated by shade tree mechanics back in the '70s. I got my Prelude (VTEC model) with about 170k miles on the clock. At 172k I switched to Mobil1 5W-30, and haven't had a single issue. As with all H22's, mine does consume a little oil when I'm in VTEC, but it's nothing to worry about... considering the engine has 184k miles on it now.

Re: Oil Change?

My prev owner used reg 5w-30 but once i got the first oil change I did 5w-30 SYN and it's good!!!

I notice a slight diff that with SYN type oil that it's thinner so it picks up quicker but the only downfall I see is that it burns up slightly faster then reg oil. But that's of course the given that reg oil is a little thicker.

IMO...

REG oil
PRO-burns less
CON-thick

SYN oil
PRO-slight faster response in pick up
CON-burns more oil then normal use

I notice quite the opposite. On my car, conventional would burn off faster than the Mobil1 does in my car. This was especially true toward the end of the conventional's lifespan. However, I have seen plenty of people running Castrol EDGE and Syntec consuming more oil than usual. A friend of mine is the manager at one of those quick lube places, and you wouldn't believe the top-offs he has to do on EDGE fills. Any quality synthetic should be more resistant to burning off under hard driving.

Re: Oil Change?

Well I was considering sticking with Honda 5w30 but if people say Synthetic is better then I guess I'll go synthetic. Now what oil should I go with?

Stay away from Quaker State. Royal Purple is overpriced and I haven't seen too many good results from long term usage. Valvoline, Pennzoil and Mobil1 make good synthetics. For conventionals, Pennzoil (yellow bottle only) is an excellent oil for the price. I prefer Castrol GTX when it comes to conventionals. Stay away from store branded oils.

That's perfectly fine with today's formulations. I just feel better when I use Mobil1... It's a personal satisfaction thing I guess. That, and I'm hoping to squeeze the last few miles I can out of my poor H22 lol. I'm almost at 200k miles.

Re: Oil Change?

I already have multiple bottles of full synthetic quaker state oil which is why I was planning to use that instead.

If you have it laying around, then there's no point going out and buying more oil. However, change it at no more than 4k miles. Anywhere between 1 and 3k miles is fine. Between 3k and 4k is getting the most out of the oil. After 4k, Quaker State turns to goo. lol.

Lol yea as long as you change your oil at 3k miles or 3 months you will be fine. Earlier the better. I hear Amsoil is one the best synthetic oils out there. If I was to go turbo that's what I would use.

I firmly believe that AMSoil is the best synthetic, non-specialized oil you can get. I don't run it in my H22 because it isn't very cost effective at the rate it consumes oil lol.

Listen to Phantom, the man knows his stuff. Using Mobil1 here, don't need anything more, wouldn't take anything less.

Yup, my friend has to order his amsoil on line, to me it's not worth it for a regular car. Now if my car was boosted and or built I would do it lol.

You can go on AMSoil's website and find local distributors. One lives in the neighborhood across from mine lol. All of their distributors are regular old people. Some might own a shop they sell it at, but you'll never find it at a retail chain though.

3k miles is just a waste of oil. I change mine at 5k and it's still not that dirty. When they up change the oil standard in 3 months oils will be approved for 10k intervals, which is common on many new cars anyway

Re: Oil Change?

I have owned my 2000 SH since 60,900 miles. I used Castrol GTX 5W30 conventional, and changed it every 3,000 miles. I switched to Mobil 1 0W30 at 135,000 miles after changing my oil pan (it had stripped drainplug threads). It just turned 156,000 today. I have noticed NO INCREASE in oil consumption with the synthetic, and change it ~ every 5,000 miles. I buy 5 qt. jugs at Chinamart for $23. I just changed my oil on Saturday, installed a Skuck2 magnetic drain plug (bought at King Motorsports for $30), and sent a sample to BlackStone labs for analysis to see if I can go longer then 5,000 miles (which I probably can since I add ~5 qts in 5,000 miles). I also use an S2000 OEM filter 15400-PCX-004.

Re: Oil Change?

ive used royal purple for over 40k miles, change every 5k miles. when i change it the old oil still feels good, very little breakdown. it eats up about a quart during that 5k stint, but i vtec A LOT. this is what i plan to add. theres an article in the new import tuner about it. 20whp in a 370z. 10whp in a s2000. check it out..

Import Tuner is about as viable a source of reliable information as the crazy preaching hippie that hangs out in front of your local gas station.
