oil change question (serious lol)

i am about to do my first oil change on my lude hopefully tomm if the whether is good, along with seafoam and spark plugs.

i got the oil and filter, but i was just wondering, the manual says to use 4.5 quarts of oil (h23a1) and the oil i bought was Mobil 1 Synthetic, and i got a 5.1 quart container. with that .6 extra quarts matter??? or will i have to measure out each quart to get it on the dot???? i did some searching and read through another forum thread about this on accords, but i just want to get opinions with what you guys do to be sure, last thing i need is to damage my engine lol


sorry for the noobish question, but i just wanna make sure of it before i drop the whole 5.1 quarts in there, and i dont really know how i could go about measuring quarts...

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

Um... You could just add the oil until you had enough for the dipstick to say so. Check it after every quart. You don't know how that oil pan looks on the inside. Is your car used to synthetic? If not, don't do it. Serious.


IGNORE OTHER GUY, his generalization is without merit.

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

Start out with 4 quarts, start the car and let it run for about 5 seconds, shut it off then check and add as needed.

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

Yeah, did you just decide to switch to synthetic or has that motor always had synthetic?

Just add 4.5 quarts like neck said, you don't have to be exact, just look at the window on the side of the bottle. Also, that 5.2 quarts info you found is the amount of oil that you would put in after an overhaul, not just a regular oil change.

I think it's 4.5 without filter change and the whole 5.1 with filter change

OP prepare for leaks, lots of them

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

ok, i will go by the dipstick then, but i dont know whether it has been running synthetic or not... why would it matter to switch to it? does it matter if im seafoaming? would that make it ok to switch to synthetic?

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

damn, now you guys got me scared to run synthetic lol, i just read up on it though, and it says that it will only create leaks if there was already a leak that was plugged with the carbon build up im guessing... like the carbon deposits, but if thats the case, then im gonna have a leak regardless because i will be using the seafoam.... it says you can switch to synthetic and back to regular mineral oil as many times as you want, but the leaking seals would be the only thing to worry about??? does this mean seals inside the engine only, or gaskets like valve cover gasket?

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

I think the whole "don't switch to synthetic" state of mind is just a bunch of crap, to be quite honest. I switched my Prelude to synthetic at about 175k miles, and it doesn't leak any more than is to be expected from a motor that now has 226k miles. The cam seal always seeped a bit beforehand. It burns a bit less, but that's more a factor of the volatility of synthetics vs conventional oil.

I've switched other motors without any ill effects as well, but the Prelude had the most miles and I've kept it the longest.

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

if you're willing to deal with, and fix leaks, go for it.


I've had experiences with a few cars where oil leakage has increased with a switch to synthetic motor oil.

real life experience> internet debates.

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

add seafoam before you do the change and drive it for a little while. idk, maybe a couple hundred miles or so? then do an oil change.

To hell with that. I've seen what Seafoam does to oil... I wouldn't do anything other than idle it for about 15 minutes, lol.

D wins. I too have tried switching to synthetic on my first prelude and I had mad leaks afterwards. Not worth it. And that 4.5q vs 5.1q thing has nothing to do with filters,they're just telling you you need to put more oil in after an overhaul. In a regular oil change there will still be oil left in the motor but in a rebuild that all comes out obviously.

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

^ yup, so don't go dumping 4.5-5.1 quarts in your car. 4 quarts give or take misc oz's will most likely be the correct number.
as stated above: add four quarts, run the car for a few minutes, clean and check the dipstick. add if needed.

For an H22. Doesn't the OP have an H23? It's lower for the H23.

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

anyone know why its bad to overfill a little bit?

my 3rd gen burns enough oil I have to check the level every other morning. If its slightly below the mark I tend to add a generous amount so I dont have to worry about it for a a couple days. For the next oil change i'll just be replacing the oil filter...

Previous owner always used sythentic thus why I use sythentic. Never had a problem with oil leaks just this one I've been dealing with for a while.

to much can just cause leaks from pressure build up,but i over filled my cbr about 1/2 qt so it didn't screw up from wheelies.However, you sir, need to replace some rings if your loosing oil that bad

Re: oil change question (serious lol)

i seafoamed today, revved the engine up in the driveway, then took it for a nice little 20 mile drive give or take, got it up to high rpms (recommended by someone) and felt less hesitation by the end of my drive, then jacked my car up, changed the oil to Mobil 1 synthetic, and changed my plugs, looked like the plugs had never been changed, they were ****ed up... NGK iridium XI are in there now i think thats the roman numeral lol...

then fired right up, idles a hell of alot smoother, picks up faster and sounds better, drove about a 30 mile drive then, checked around for oil leaks, which i will be doing every day just to be sure, there was a little bit of a foamy spot that looked like a possibly leak by the valve cover which was probably from the seafoam and the synthetic in the same day... but no biggie, that can be changed easily if needed, im gonna clean my engine bay again soon, and then i will see where it goes from there

next week im changing my spark plug wires, the ones i have now are stock at 120,000 miles!!!!!!!!!!!!! and changing out my air filter. then the following week i will probably get a distributor cap, and start up on suspension components, like ball joints, and bushings and ****...

BUT overall my engine is running and feels alot healthier, smooth, and great performance, anyone thinking of seafoaming, DO IT

Thanks for all the advice guys
