What is the oil type for the Honda Odyssey?

I’m a DIY sort of person and want to save money on oil changes by doing it myself. I don’t want to make a mistake so I need to know the right oil type for my Odyssey?

Nothing better than using your own two hands! The type of oil you should use for a
Honda Odyssey
is Mobil 1 - Advanced Full Synthetic 5W-20 Motor Oil.
It’s important to make sure you’re using the correct type of oil because the wrong substitutions could cause serious (and expensive) damage to your engine.
If you want to save more money, here are some other DIY car maintenance tasks to consider:
  • Replace all fluids
  • Install new windshield wipers if the current ones are lackluster
  • Clean the interior so that it looks and smells fresh
  • Flush the radiator
  • Check the tire pressure to make sure they have enough air
  • Catch problems before they worsen by listening for unfamiliar noises
Of course, if you’re feeling unsure about anything, it’s best to leave it for your mechanic. It’s great to try new things, but also know when it’s time to call in a professional.
