    2017 crv using oil.

    Give valvoline maxlife 5w30 a try and maybe try an engine flush like amsoil or bg epr at your next oil change. Your usage is well below excessive though

    Just an update. Not sure if it’s the increase in viscosity or the amsoil flush that freed up my rings but im 1200 miles in and I’m barely 1/4 quart down. Been driving more conservative on the max life 5w30 change so far but had a couple high rpm highway runs and the level is holding up. I’m...

    Oil recommendations for 2008 Honda Accord V6 3.5L

    So an update I’m a little over 2k and have added about 2quarts so Mobil 1 hm has somewhat increased my consumption. Instead of topping up when I got low at the 2k mark i ran the amsoil flush and drained. Oil came out blacker than I’ve seen even after the first draining of that unknown fill after...

    Oil recommendations for 2008 Honda Accord V6 3.5L

    Bought the car back in July 2020. Car has an unknown maintenance history. It is the non VCM variant as it is a 6 speed manual coupe (supposedly VCM causes high levels of oil consumption on these motors) 148k Miles on the clock. Did the timing belt and water pump and spark plugs/ Air filter after...

    So I just recently purchased a 2000 Honda accord lx auto with the sohc f20a1 2.3 VTEC four. I was given an oil change sticker after buying the car and it supposedly only did 14 miles on its current oci but I believe they tried to pull a fast one and didn't do the change. Now I checked the...
