I think I heard they made mistake about 5W-20 in manual, but service guy says use 5-20 for Ody and he never heard about the sticker that goes over the manual.

Hmmm..

He also says do not use synthetic oil cause it will ruin the motor. He used worked for Ferrari and he knows what he's taliking about(He says)

He's a moron. Typical dealer monkey.

Honda's comments

Key word ... He used to work for Ferrari. I'm assuming a dealership or rinky dink shop that catered to anyone with a shiny red car, not the Ferrari factory. Now he's working on Hondas? LOL

Factory fill on Ferraris is synthetic from what I've heard. See my original comment. Stay away from monkeys like that.

I'm having a heck of a time reading that document. Does it say 5w-30?

Did you click on the pic for a bigger version of it?

It reads "Your 2001 Odyssey Owner's Manual page 250 and the back page of the Service Information Summary incorrectly recommend 5W 20 motor oil. The correct motor oil viscosity for 2001 is 5W 30."

Try the album "5W-30 Letter from Honda" at the link in my sig. I just resized it to make it much more readable. Click it and then click it again to make it full screen.

Take care.

I just added a border around the pic so it would be more obvious that it's hyperlinked.

I also tweaked the contrast a bit so it would be a little easier to read. I hope that helps.

Man, if this isn't the best, most helpful board, with the friendliest, most responsive members and moderators...

You guys are super. All the tweaks have made it perfectly readable now.

Trust me...once I get my Ody, you'll be inundated with shots and mods from ol' Darell. For fun, here's what I did for my 2001 Volvo: www.darelldd.com/volvo
