Go with the shop manual's recommendation - it's put out by the manufacturer. If they list different viscosities for cold vs warm weather, you may benefit by following that if you live in a climate with cold winters (ie, 5W30 in winter, and 10W30 in summer).

Hi i have mitsubishi Lancer 2005 1.6 Mt the car is knocking on 1500 rpm to 2000 rpm plz help me


Hi. Hope the oil wa drained at the recommended service intervals? Have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure gauge from cold start up until she warms up. The pressure should be slighly higher when the oil is cold. But keep the rpm in that range, and see what the pressure gauge shows.

I assume you mean the engine. Any good quality 15W-40 or 20 W50 oil will do. Preferably use an oil that has the backing of a large petroleum distributor.
