What is the 2005 Honda Accord’s oil type?

I’ve always gone to a quick lube shop to get my oil changes, but it’s such a hassle. I’d like to try to start changing my oil at home, but I’m not sure what kind of oil to buy. What kind of oil does a 2005 Honda Accord need?

Great idea! Changing your own oil is one of the easiest

tasks to do yourself.
A 2005
Honda Accord’s
oil type is 5W-20 synthetic oil. The Accord holds 4.4 quarts.
With synthetic oil, it’s recommended that you change your oil every 5,000 to 10,000 miles to keep your engine in good shape.
