2007 Honda Accord 2.4 engine oil capacity

First things first, how much engine oil does a 2007 Honda Accord 2.4 need?
Since your car has a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, the oil capacity is 4.4 quarts (4.2 liters)–this is different from Accord models with a V6 engine. Why 4.4 instead of the number in the engine description?
That’s because the 2.4-liter is for your engine's displacement, which just tells you how much space those four cylinders need. On the other hand, the oil capacity lets you know how many quarts it takes to fill your engine every time you change the oil. Mixing the two numbers up can be an easy mistake, but they refer to completely different things.

What kind of oil does a 2007 Honda Accord 2.4 need?

So, can you just grab a random oil and get started? Absolutely not!
Your 2007 Honda Accord’s owner manual says to use 5W-20 detergent oil with an API (American Petroleum Institute) certification seal. This oil will help keep your Accord’s motor in top condition and will work best for that engine type.
What does all that jumble mean? The 5 and "W" gives you the winter viscosity (i.e., how thick that oil is), while the 20 is for hot weather–oil is rated based on how well it flows at different temperatures, from 0°F to 212°F. This type of oil works well in a variety of weather conditions.
So what about the detergent part? That tells you the oil has some additives to help keep the engine from clogging with all the gunk that can get into it, so it keeps your motor running more smoothly and longer than regular oil.

How often to change oil on a 2007 Honda Accord 2.4

Now that you know more about the oil capacity and type, what about the when?
Conventional oil should be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. You don’t want to go much beyond every six months, even if your Accord spends a lot of time in your garage.
Something like synthetic oil can go every 7,500 to 10,000 miles since it’s easier on the engine and doesn’t build up as much, though you’ll probably notice your car starts to go through oil faster as it gets older.
Instead of throwing a dart at a calendar to pick a random date, check your oil on a
consistent schedule
. Maintenance is important in keeping your car on the road, so don’t go beyond once a month. If you notice any of the problems below, you’ll want to swap out that oil:
  • Dark brown, blackish, or gritty-looking motor oil
  • The engine doesn’t sound like it usually does
  • Unpleasant smells, especially burning or smoky odors
  • Your Accord doesn’t perform as well as it should

How to change your oil and oil filter

If it’s time to get that oil change, you will need a few things on hand. You’ll want to have a filter wrench, a drain pan, a socket wrench, five quarts of 5W-20 detergent oil engine oil, plus a replacement filter. Some disposal gloves and paper towels don’t hurt either!
Get your engine warm by running your Accord for around five minutes. You might find
using a car jack
or ramp helpful, just be super careful if you do! You’ll need to turn off the engine and open the hood before you move to the next steps:
  1. Unscrew the oil fill cap
  2. Once you’re under the engine, take off the oil drain bolt and washer, and get the used oil draining (don’t forget the drain pan!)
  3. Take out the old oil filter while waiting for the old oil to empty out
  4. Get that new filter in place
  5. Once the oil is done draining, put the oil drain bolt on, along with a new washer, and tighten the bolt to 29 lb-ft.
  6. Time to fill up the engine with the new oil and then replace the oil fill cap
It doesn't hurt to run your Accord for under a minute to get the oil moving along, then make sure you filled the engine enough by checking the oil levels with the dipstick. Your
oil pressure light
should disappear once more if everything is good.
And one last thing. Put that old oil in a sealed container and take it to the recycling center or your local auto parts store. Whatever you do, don’t toss it in the garbage or dump it outside–it’s both a fire hazard and toxic.
Okay, now to take your 2007 Honda Accord 2.4 for a spin!
