Solid, If you have a 2002, the owners manual specifies 5W-20 for all conditions. Most owners seem to think that 5W-30 is as good (or better) in warm climates (>90F). Apparently some modern engines are engineered for low viscosity oils. It should yield better gas mileage, but a lot of us who came up on "20W-50" for high performance engines worry about engine wear. I still haven't decided what I will use when the time comes (very soon), but probably 5W-30.Solid said:I'm buying an oil filter from the dealer but the oil itself, I'm thinking of getting it at Costco. Is Castrol or Chevron will have the same performance as the original? And what does my MDX uses, 10-30, 10-40? Thanks.
Don't forget the compression washer when you pick up your filter at the dealer.
