Hi, is it o.k. to use 5w20 oil instead of 0w20 oil in honda civic hybrids? Does it depend on the climate where one lives?
Take a look in your owners manual. It should list which oil you can use.
Use only the type and weight of oil recommended in your owner’s manual and change it regularly.
When we reached 120k miles on our 1987 Civic, I asked our favorite mechanic how long we could expect the car to last. He replied that the earliest he had ever seen a Civic engine fail was 180k miles and its owners changed the oil once a year if they remembered to. With 20 more years of engineering development by Honda and proper maintenance by your part, your Civic should last far longer.
