CAN I MIX 10W40 WITH 10W30 IN MY CADILLAC DEVILLE 1997


yes. they are both multigrade oils only the viscosities are different but both are acceptable in the engine The 10w40 would be a better grade for an engine from 1997 . up grade the viscosity for hotter climates to 30w50 for an 1997 engine as the older the engine the heavier the oil

WHAT TYPE OF OIL IS BEST FOR MY ENGINE


Go by the manufacture's recommendation as far as type and weight. As far as brand, it is subjective. Any major brand should have the proper amount of additives. If you are trying to decide between synthetic and dino oil, either is good as long as you faithfully change them at the recommended intervals. With older vehicles, synthetics seem to "find leaks".

I need an oil change and I cant find an oil that has SG in the label. What should I use?


You can use oil with an API rating of at least SG and therefore can use today's oils with an SN rating. The API service rating is basically a classification assigned to signify the oil's ability to reduce friction and oil consumption, improve emissions, and provide better lubrication. The API ratings are backwards compatible, but not vice versa, meaning SN will work for SG but SJ will not work for SM.

The "low oil pressure -


It could be. The best is just follow your instruction manual on what type the oil should used on your car. But since your car is has the year 2006, it should use specs. API... SL or SM. The viscosity will has range 5W30 -10W40. Again don't get be cheated by the newest oil products, The best oil for your car is the one recommended on your manual in many aspects.

WHAT OIL FOR 2005 KIA SORRENTO..PLEASE!


In the Owners manual is stated:
For better fuel economy, it is recommended to use the engine oil of
a viscosity grade SAE 5W-20 (API SM / ILSAC GF-4). However, if the engine oil is not available in your country, select the the proper engine oil engine oil using the engine oil viscosity chart.
What brand of oil to use is up to you. Castrol 5W-20 GTX, Pennzoil, Valvoline, or you can go up to Mobile 1, which is more expensive. If you change oil every 3000miles or 3 months, then you may not use synthetic oil, but it is up to you. My personal opinion is:
It is better to change 5W-20 Castrol GTX every 3 months or 3000miles than fully synthetic Mobil1 5W-20 every 6months or 6000miles.

You can use 5W-20 all year around, but when you Kia Sorento will accumulate miles, and engine start to wear up, thicker 10W-30 is a suitable substitute. If the temperature will be 20F and expected to fall you must not use 10W-30, and will have 5W-20 in your Kia Sorento Oil PAN. The reason is that, when you start the engine the oil is in the Oil Pan, and 10w-30 is very thick in low temperatures. Till the oil warms up the engine wears up extensively.

Can anybody tell me the correct type and weight of oil a 2004 volvo xc 90 uses also # for replacment oil filter


Oil filter is provided by year,make, model of your vehicle at the parts store. ---
Oil and fluids Oil quality
Engine oil must meet the minimum ILSAC specification GF-2, including ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF and SJ/Energy Conserving.
Your Volvo has been certified to standards using ILSAC oil specification GF-2 5W-30. Volvo recommends use of oil with a quality rating equal to or higher than ILSAC GF-2. Equivalent and better oils include ACEA A1, API SJ, SJ/CF, and SJ/Energy conserving. Lower quality oils may not offer the same fuel economy, engine performance, or engine protection.
Volvo Cars recommends Castrol. Depending on your driving habits, premium or synthetic oils may provide superior fuel economy and engine protection. Consult your Volvo retailer for recommendations on premium or synthetic oils. Oil additives must not be used. NOTE: Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance is carried out. This oil is only used at customer request, at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer. Operation in hot climates.
When temperatures exceed 86° F (30° C) in your area, Volvo recommends, for the protection of your engine, that you use a heavier weight oil, such as SAE 10W-30. See the viscosity chart below. pg129a.jpg Oil viscosity (stable ambient temperatures)
Operation in temperate climates
Incorrect viscosity oil can shorten engine life. Under normal use when temperatures do not exceed 86° F (30° C), SAE 5W-30 will provide good fuel economy and engine protection. See the viscosity chart above. Extreme engine operation
Synthetic oils meeting SAE 10W-30 and complying with oil quality requirements are recommended for driving in areas of sustained temperature extremes (hot or cold), when towing a trailer over long distances, and for prolonged driving in mountainous areas. Changing oil and oil filter
Oil and oil filter changes should be made at 7,500 mile (12,000 km) intervals. Volvo does not recommend the use of oil additives.
Synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal maintenance intervals except at ower request and at additional charge. Please consult your Volvo retailer.
