2014 Honda Accord 2.4 engine oil capacity

First things first—you’ll need to know how much oil to put into your Honda when you change its motor oil. The 2014 Honda Accord 2.4 has an engine oil capacity of exactly 4.4 quarts. Of course, motor oil is almost always sold by the quart, so you’ll probably have to buy a full 5 quarts in order to ensure that you have enough. 
Don’t be confused by the 2.4 in the car’s name. That referred to the engine’s displacement, not its engine oil capacity. 

What kind of oil does a 2014 Honda Accord 2.4 need?

Using the correct amount of oil is critical to avoid damaging your engine. It’s just as important, though, to know what kind of oil you should use. The 2014 Honda Accord 2.4 uses full synthetic motor oil with a viscosity rating of 0W-20
The viscosity rating describes how thick the oil is at different temperatures. A viscosity rating of 0W-20 refers to an oil with a level 0 viscosity at “winter temperature” (also called “cold start temperature”), which is 0°F. Additionally, the 0W-20 rating means that the oil has a viscosity level of 20 at “normal operating temperature,” which is 212°F
Any motor oil that is fully synthetic and has a viscosity rating of 0W-20 will work for your 2014 Honda Accord 2.4. However, not all motor oils will work as well as others. Like any product, motor oil comes in a variety of quality options, depending on the company that manufactures it. If you don’t know which brand to buy, consider using one of these motor oils: 
  • Honda’s recommendation: The safest option is always to use the motor oil that Honda makes itself called
    Genuine Honda Motor Oil
    . This is the oil that Honda recommends and the kind that comes in it, to begin with.  
  • For high-mileage vehicles:If your Accord has a lot of miles on it, and you’re looking to extend its lifespan as much as possible, you can use
    Mobil 1’s Extended Performance Synthetic Motor Oil 0W-20
    —it’s designed to work well with high-mileage vehicles. 
  • A high-quality synthetic blend: Another option is
    Valvoline - Advanced Full Synthetic 0W-20 Motor Oil
    . It’s an alternative to Honda Genuine and Mobil 1 that works just as well.

How often to change the oil in a 2014 Honda Accord 2.4

Now that you know the correct type and quantity of motor oil to use for your 2014 Honda Accord 2.4, the next question is: When should you change your motor oil? 
As a general rule, you should change the oil in your 2014 Honda Accord 2.4 every 3,500-5,000 miles of driving or every six months—whichever comes first. 
With that said, however, you will sometimes need to change it more often than that. If you ever notice strange sounds or smells coming from your engine, you should change your oil right away—regardless of how recently you’ve already done so. On top of that, you should also change your oil if you ever notice the following issues: 
  • Oil that has changed color from light-brown/amber to dark-brown/black
  • Oil that feels gritty or rough
  • Oil that has visible debris or contaminants in it
  • Oil that is frothing or foamy
Remember, you can never change your oil too often—but it’s very easy to change it too seldom. If you’re ever unsure whether or not to change your oil, it’s better to err on the side of caution. Go ahead and change the oil.

How to change your oil and oil filter

You’ve learned what type of oil your 2014 Honda Accord 2.4 uses, how much of that oil it needs, and how often it needs its oil replaced—now you’re ready to learn how to actually change the oil
When the time for an oil change comes, you’ll need to have 4.4 quarts of fresh 0W-20 motor oil, a fresh oil filter, a filter wrench, a socket wrench, and a drain pain
Have everything you need? Great! Here’s what you’ll need to do
  • Start the engine of your 2014 Honda Accord 2.4. Let the engine run for a few minutes until it reaches a normal temperature—this will ensure the oil drains properly and in a timely fashion. 
  • Once the car has warmed up, shut the engine off. Then, pull the hood release lever, move around the front of the vehicle, and open the hood
  • Underneath the hood is the engine bay, which houses the engine and some associated components. In the engine bay, locate and remove the oil fill cap—a black cap that covers the engine oil reservoir. It should be clearly labeled. 
  • Next, slide underneath the engine bay with your back on the ground—facing up at the underside of the engine. Locate and remove the oil drain bolt or “oil drain plug.” It’s a bolt located on the bottom of the oil reservoir. Removing it will release the oil in your engine, so make sure that you’re not directly underneath it. Have the drain pan in position to catch the oil as it drains. 
  • The oil will take a few minutes to fully drain. While it’s doing that, use your filter wrench to remove the old oil filter. The filter is different in each car, but it should be located below the engine. You’ll see it situated horizontally and facing toward the front of the Honda Accord. 
  • Wait for the oil to drain completely. Once it has, you can install the new oil filter in place of the old one you’ve just removed. 
  • With the fresh oil filter in place, you’re almost ready to add the fresh oil. First, though, make sure to reattach the oil drain bolt—you don’t want all the fresh oil to drain right out! 
  • Once you’re sure the drain bolt is on, tightened, and secure, go ahead and add the fresh 0W-20 motor oil to the oil reservoir via the opening where you removed the oil fill cap. 
  • You can use the fill marks on the reservoir and the dipstick to measure the oil as you add it. Once you’ve added 4.4 quarts, stop adding oil. Then, replace the oil fill cap
  • It’s a good idea, at this point, to start the engine again and let it run for another five minutes. While it’s running, watch the engine to make sure there aren’t any oil leaks. As long as you don’t see any, you’re finished! 
Changing the oil in your car can sound like a daunting task—especially if you don’t have a lot of experience working on cars. As you’ve just learned firsthand, though, it is actually very easy—and it only takes about 20 minutes! 
Now you can shut off the engine, clean up, pour the old oil into a sealable container (such as an old water bottle or milk jug), and then deliver the old oil to a recycling center—disposing of the oil in any other manner is illegal in most states.
