Re: "New" 1990 Civic Oil Questions

If you are going with the 3,000 oil change, stick with conventional. There's no reason to run Syn for 3,000. It's a huge waste of money. One of the biggest advantage of Syn is to go longer on your...

Re: 5w30 ok?

That's because it's doing it's job and cleaning your engine.

As far is 5w30 for the D17. It's perfectly safe, most 5w30 will shear down to a 20w over time anyways.
