    Lightbulb 2005 civic Exi Engine oil

    AOA


    I've been using ZIC A engine oil for my 2005 honda civic exi. But I've just read in owners manual that engine oil should be "SJ or SG grade" which ZIC A is not.

    questions:
    1. SJ OR SG grade oil is SK ZIC which is for small engine, should i use it with my cng kit?
    2. how should I change engine oil type? i've heard frequently changing engine oil will damage engine.
    3. Any suggestions?


    Thanks

    Yar you're confusing yourself. The manual means "SG SJ or better". The standard for zic A is SN which better than SJ.
    So keep on using Zic A man do not use Zic 4T that is for motor bikes.
    Just read the recommended oil grade in the manual and go buy that.

    Zic A is fine it is API SN grade which is newer than SJ or SG.
    If you want to change engine oil you can go for engine flush if you want.
    You can also try more famous brands like Mobil and Liquimoly.
