    Honda engine Vs Nissan

    my accord went over 500k miles. it was an F series engine with a belt. the H,D,F series 4cyl)all had belts, the K series (accords and civic si, rsx,tsx) 4 cyl all have chains. chains are good but not maintenance free, the guides and tensioners should be replaced

    5w-20 vs 5w-30

    i don't care about fuel economy, but would like your opinions about when the manual says both 5w-20 and 5w-30 are acceptable. i've always run 5 or 10w-30 in my vehicles. climate is not a concern as i live where it's well-within all of the temp ranges. vehicle is a 2018 santa fe with the 2.4 gdi

    Most important tire performance parameter?
