No, stick to 5W-20 or 5W-30 depending on the model year of your Odyssey. You live in Ft. Worth with relatively warm winters, for crying out loud! The 0W-30 stuff is for super cold temps such as Alaska or N. Dakota.</font>
Yup. Just found Texaco Havoline 5W-20 at the parts store too.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by sfearing:
>so where do i go (in person) to buy 5w-20 syn oil?
The dealership should sell it ($$$) but I believe either Quaker State or Pennzoil makes a 5W-20. Other manufacturers are coming out with it or are about to come out with it but I haven't been following it too closely - my 2000 Odyssey requires 5W-30.</font>
Keep in mind that the new 5W-20 formulations may well be as good or better than old 5W-30 formulations. To meet the new API/ILSAC requirements, they have to use improved or synthetic base stocks and/or additive packages.<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">Originally posted by SoFlaOdyssey:
I don't mean to revive the 5W20 vs 5W30 thread, but in case some of you haven't read about it....
I don't know what year Odyssey you have, but somewhere on this forum is "evidence" that we should be using 5W30 oil in our Odyssey's (except the 2002, which DO use 5W20).
I used 5W20, per my EARLY 2001's manual, but learned that later 2002's came with an updated manual that read 5W30.
