Look at your oil cap. It sometimes has it printed on the oil fill cap.If not 10W20 is good

both 10w-30 or 5w-30 would be fine for 95 accord. only the newer ones take 5w-20. hope this helps.

Automakers recommend 5w20 or 5w30 only because the lighter oil enables them to meet the EPA MPG requirements. The heavier oils are actually better for your engine. Since your car has some age, I would recommend 10W30.

10-W20 is better for summer but 5-w20 or 10 is better for the winter
