My neighbor is a ASE mechanic and he recommends thicker oil for oil changes. He mentioned that's what the dealers use despite the recommended 5W-20 oil. I've been using Mobil1 Synthetic Oil 10W-30 High Mileage ever since. $8.5K-10k for a remanufactured engine or new engine seems kind of high. I bought my 2007 Honda Pilot EX-L for 9k last year. If you can find a honest mechanic, he can find a wrecked Honda (Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, or Acura MDX) with a J-series motor for about 2k. Your area prices may vary. About 2k for installation. I use Seafoam Oil and Fuel additive from time to time (every 10k), as well. I tried cleaning my EGR ports, but they were already clean.
