    Default Engine Oil for Old Cars

    I have 92 accord with JDM 2000 Accord Engine. Engine is in good nick thanks to Allah. I was wondering what oil is best for it. Searching thread was helpful but they were for new cars xli/gli etc. I have questions

    1. Use Mineral Oil if yes which company
    2. Use Synthetic Oil and which grade
    3. Is it better to have shorter drainage periods or longer periods with synthetic oils.......
    4. Please suggest best Oil Company.... heard shell ultra is best according to @Xulfiqar https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/oil...-2#post4227287
    Personally i am biased towards Synthetic Oil. Someone said in Pakistan there is alot of dusts so its better you drain your oil frequently. Dont know how legitimate is this.

    thanks for correction. it has very good low end torgue for routine city drive, however will look into thermostat and pcv because car was sitting for nearly a year, by the way currently using this:

    A lower viscosity on the hot side is recommended and genuine toyota oil filter because in this engine the filter mounts upside down. You need a good filter to prevent drain back.

    genuine filters are very hard to find now a days, even reputed spare part shops are selling fake products in original packings, next oil change is expected in 2 weeks time( according to my calculations) i will cut the filter and post pictures here.

    I would recommend Castrol Magnatec 10W-40 (UK) or Shell Helix HX7-E 5W-40 whichever is easily available at your place for Honda F series aluminum block engine.

    For Auto Transmission Honda DW-1 or Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF is best.

    I am still using Delo Gold Ultra in 89 Accord A16A1 engine and M/T as per Xulfiqar bhai advice and is running like a champ for past 8-9 years.

    Now I am thinking to replace with Mobil Delo MX ESP Formula.

    That is called cartridge style filter, is easy to break it if you are trying to wrestle with it, Its pretty simple to take out too, Use a rubber strap and a lever to undo it or buy the proper fluted tool.

    I had a few of these tools are these filters are common on european engines.

    Yes. Our oil change guy also put a soft hand on it while undoing it.
    But I think its weird. It has to be of metal at-lest for more safety.
