What is the 2004 Honda Pilot’s oil type?

I just bought a 2004 Honda Pilot and the previous owner said it needs an oil change. I can take care of it myself, but I’m not sure what type of motor oil to buy. What is the 2004 Honda Pilot’s oil type?

Honda Pilot
needs 5W-20 motor oil. You’re free to use either conventional or synthetic oil, but we suggest opting for synthetic oil because it’s cleaner and doesn’t break down as fast as conventional oil does.
Synthetic oil might be a little more expensive, but because it lasts a lot longer than conventional oil, it can actually save you money in the long run! While cars that use conventional oil need their oil changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, a car that uses a synthetic motor oil only needs it changed every 7,500 to 15,000 miles.
