Why would you supplement with moly? If it has that many miles and you aren't replacing those 2 leaks, I would save your money. The engine wont be the first thing to go on the car. But congrats on the 224K!! Hopefully my car makes it that long.

Maybe they will back date this to cover the OLM in my old Chevy Vega GT. No, wait, it didn't have an OLM. Instead, it had a red light that came on when half the 20W-50 Castrol GTX in its oil pan had blown out the tailpipe.

Give it a try. If this engine is using only as much oil as you state, that isn't bad at all for a 224K four cylinder. You might try FS with no additives just to see what happens with consumption.

I have a Kawasaki FC series with 1300 hours on it, and a FD series with over 2500 hours on it. The FD is used nearly daily. I wouldn't think about anything but a Kaw at this point.

might as well use factory oil filter until your warranty is over, then you can use anything you want. Q.

I just bought my first Subaru (2014 Impreza Sport) and am used to changing the oil and filter myself on my last car, so I figured it would be easy enough to do on this car too. The problem is that I don't know which filter to use. With my last car,

You might talk to the Service manager at the Honda dealer, I guess it is within the realm of possibility that they can do warranty work if the closest Acura dealer is that far away. Certainly would think regular maintenance would be no issue should y
