    Hie forum i just bought a 04 honda accord ex UK with 89k miles. im new to Honda and i stay in Namibia. i wanted to ask if 20w-50 castrol oil is good for the car since it is the most commonly used oil here in Namibia. I heard on the forum that its too thick and is not suitable for the car. please help before i kill my new honda motor. Please advice me for the best oil to use on this car since namibia is very hot throughout the year.
    Has anyone have a link to download the Manual for this car. thanx guys

    Hi mate,
    Welcome. I had a look for 'severe conditions', which include high temperatures. Manual says: change oil every 10.000 km.
    Oil viscosity: thickest allowed in a 2004 petrol 2.0 or 2.4 is 15W40. So don't put 20W50 in your car!!
