Default What type of oil do I put in my Honda Jazz '02 1.5 VTI petrol?

I noticed it was a bit low on oil so I just want to know if there is a certain kind of oil I have to put in it































Thanks

Check the owners manual under "Specifications." It will tell you what grade of oil to use. But I have to ask you: are you reading the oil dipstick correctly? The motor should be at operating temperature when you check the oil. On the dipstick there may be a series of XXXX's or 4 to 5 dots. As long as the oil on the stick is within the range there is no need to add oil. For the most part Honda engines don't use oil unless they are high mileage and even then they don't...

a honda 1.5 at that mileage would need fully synthetic 5-50 5-60 or 10-60 oil to protect the bearings , it's low viscosity at low temperatures but stays constant at higher temperatures instead of thinning out, many cars throw bearings in hot climates simply because the oil is too thin

Valvoline 10W-30W other brands will have different recommendations really depends on the brand all brands usually have a lube guide.
