Default Re: Switching to 5w-20 from 5w-30 in older civic

i was in walmart and noticed they have castrol gtx in 5w-20 grade so decide
with this oil change in my old 1988 honda civic i'm using the newer grade
hopefully it won't cause any damage. i don't think it will and i think it'
going to be an improvement. less strain on the crank shaft and pistons
anyone who has any knowledge about the newer oil please let me know. thanks

the newer grade of oil is just for that for newer vehicles." you have used it? shoulden"t harm your engine in fact you might even gain a slight increase in gas mileage from the thinner viscosity". however i would not take a chance on my engine. on your next oil change switch back to what the manufacture has called for ;
