    Oil capacity?

    Yeah, I know, RTFM, but I just bought a 2007 Ody EX and it came with no manual. If someone could kindly pass along how many quarts the engine takes (with a filter change, obviously), I'd very much appreciate it. The van sat on a rural Ford lot for almost a year, and while they did change it when they got it it's hardly been driven in a year and I want to get fresh stuff in there. Thanks.

    Phil

    IIRC it is 4.6 quarts, but that is off the top of my head as I don't have my Owner's manual in hand.

    Put in 4 quarts.

    Start the engine and allow it to idle for a minute to check for leaks and to ensure the filter is full.

    Check level, and add appropriate amount of oil.

    Online owner's manual

    A change takes 4.5 quarts, although the actual capacity is 5.3 quarts. The difference is pooled somewhere inside the engine.

    Congratulations on the Ody!

    You can also register on honda's website, with your VIN, and have access to the manual, plus recall info, specs, etc.

    I wonder why folks keep the owner's manual when they trade the stupid car in. 99% of 'em don't read it any way but they keep the darn book. Go figure.

    The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.

    No kidding. Didn't we have that poor owner who's NAV was locked and the moron prior owner wouldn't unlock it for 'em. People are crazy sometimes.

    Thanks guys! Got the oil changed; very easy and only semi-messy, so I can appreciate that. My van came with no second key (one master with fob, one valet), no owner's manual and no wheel lock key. Thanks to davedrivesody, I now have a manual . And thanks to Jay Wolfe Honda in Kansas City, I now have a wheel lock key. Get myself an ebay fob, and that'll be good enough. Oh, and I guess I'd better find the radio code too; didn't come with that either.

    Anyway, I'm sure I'll be around here more, and thanks again for all the friendly help!

    Regards,

    Phil

    You might want to track down the selling dealer. They keep the Key number and the Radio codes on file. You might come out ahead that way. Also check the glove box and other nooks and corners for a white sticker with numbers. Most dealers stick a spare set of codes some where in the van.

    That actually does NOT seem to be true for used cars. As evidenced in the prior few posts pertaining to radio codes. I think that Anthony guy tried to get it out of Owner's Link as couldn't because Owner's Link will ask for the phone number of the original owner which I am sure nobody who buys used from the dealer lot or from classifieds will have.

    See the thread below for more details.

    how do I change stereo's PIN on 05 touring w/navi?
