Wats the best oil to use for the h22?

Ive read many posts and no one ever really says wats the best for the car? I use castrol synthetic 5w30 but ever since i bought the car and but synthetic in it the valves seem louder. i set the valves but it still does it a bit. Anyway im wondering if i can use a synthetic 10w30 now that its summer? any ideas?

Re: Wats the best oil to use for the h22?

10w-30 is fine for summer use. Honda didn't switch to 5w-30 til the 5th gen.

As far as "best", that's a really subjective term. There's no definitive "best"

Re: Wats the best oil to use for the h22?

i would use one of four if you have the money to do so...

mobil 1
royal purple
amsoil
motul

there are others, but the above four are the stand outs...

i use royal puple, and used to run mobil 1...
ive been wanting to swith to motul or amsoil, but that s**t is expensive!!!!!!!
and yes 10w 30 is fine for summer use.



edit....redline is great too...

Re: Wats the best oil to use for the h22?

Or go to www.bobistheoilguy.com, do your own research and make up your own mind. I mean, would you go out and buy Castrol Hypruon if we told you it was the best oil for a H22? Of course you wouldn't. (And if you would, I will remind you that I"m about to jump off a cliff - hope to see you down the bottom)

Re: Wats the best oil to use for the h22?























Mobil1 5w-30 with purolator 99% filter or K&N/mobil1 filter, whichever is cheaper. Not about being the best, but what is approved by the OEM gods. Personally, get whatever oil you want, but add Lucas Oil Stabilizer if you intend on living above 4500rpm.

Re: Wats the best oil to use for the h22?

It's the Same as Using a Heavier weight oil, but clings better to Metal surfaces. I would suggest reading the Instructions before adding it to your engine. IF you are always at a high rpm like VTEC or Forced induction, the Stabilizer will provide some protection on dino oil. Full synth doesn't need it under normal operation.

Re: Wats the best oil to use for the h22?

I've used the Lucas Synthetic Stabilizer in my Mobil1 before, and did notice a reduction in oil consumption and the engine felt better. Then again, the second benefit could have been entirely in the mind.

But it comes with a Nitro-Drag race car on the bottle! IT HAS TO BE GOOD! I know you spun the display case Knobs looking at the stuff stick to the gears! And only at 82RPM! (I was sure tired)

Seriously, It's like Volcano insurance on your car, you just never know...

lol that stupid gear sh*t doesn't fool me. The engine was quieter, and at 200k, I don't have much to lose when it comes to the engine lol.

Re: Wats the best oil to use for the h22?

When I bought my car the previous owner told me I should only stick with 5w-30 conventional year round. I was wondering would it be wise to switch to 10w-30 in the summer and 5w-30 in the winter since sometimes I do hit higher RPMs?
