Motorkote is great for many things, so don't toss it. Put it in a spray bottle and you can use it for many lube/protective needs. It is super slippery and long lasting.

What kind of a 0w-30 car does he have? The Sentra, given the vintage, would be perfectly comfortable on any 5w-30, not to mention any 0w-30 out there, be it ILSAC rated, GC, or an HDEO. As for Lucas, you're not going to find a lot of support for it

Wow is this thread splitting hairs on a UOA that looks like virgin oil. These Honda 2.4's can run ANY oil for well over 7k miles. To pay for a UOA at 3k is a complete waste. You will not find any decent wear metal numbers at that mileage to track.

If you don't plan on using them too often, you can do the "loan-a-tool" at the local auto store. I borrowed a O2 sensor socket from autozone for a refundable deposit, no hassle. I did get the O2 sensor from them as well. I have my dad's
