What oil and coolant do you use in your Civic?

I have a 2002 Civic EX and will need to change the coolant and oil since I'm changing the timing belt and water pump (and possibly the seals). I keep reading on here that it's really bad to use cheap oil and coolant and many people recommend using OEM oil and coolant from the dealership, but it's so expensive!

What brand/type of oil and coolant do you use in your Civic? Does a store like Advance Auto Parts sell anything that is acceptable to use?

I'm sorry but I can't allow this thread to continue. I'm closing it because this topic is covered x 100000 on this forum. Nothing personal Civicnewb but if you do a little bit of research you will find this has been killed to no end here.
