    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.

    Fleet oil means its good for all piston type internal combustion engines. 5,000 kms oil drain is a good interval with good branded filter.

    diesel rated oils have heavy duty detergents in them and they keep the engine sparkly clean and move the nasty stuff to the filter where it should be. I have used such oils in my own cars too in Pakistan.

    This would also be available in Pakistan. Its not that expensive. I had 3 sizes in Pakistan - I think they cost me Rs 200/piece. Just apply and use a ratchet to remove.

    If you use a strap on it - it will become risky.

    Brother no Honda owners manual ever mention any Oil marketing company or brand.

    In 1992 SJ was the best grade available.

    Honda genuine oil is the cheapest nowadays made by Total Atlas Lubricants Pakistan.

    Rs. 2,400/4L for 10W30 oil.

    However, I prefer Castrol Magnatec 10W40 at same price.

    Brother Dexron II and III are always temporary replacement.

    ATF DW-1 is universal ATF backward compatible with all Honda Transmissions with torque converter.

    However I use Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF for my Mom's CA4 3G Accord which has more than 300,000 km now on factory transmission.
