SOURCE: I would like to know

i would not normally recommend mixing different types of oil like that.
i would keep to the same type of oil wherever possible.

Had oil change today. 1998 GMC Sonoma truck required 5w30 they put in 5w20sn. so will hurt engine?


Oil viscosity explained.

It will not make a lot of difference and may will be better as a winter oil.

The main consideration is that they have used a synthetic oil, designated by the 'sn'. I _think_ you have to do a flush if you go over to synthetic from standard.

What is the best oil to put in my rav4 2003 please?


using a high grade full synthetic is the best.
the oil grade which is 10w30 is for average driving conditions.
for winter,5w30 and 10w40 for summer is also recommended by alot of car manufacturers.The oil filler cap will tell you the oil grade.

What is engine oil type, 2001 durango 4-wheel 4.7 engine


You can use any of the following weights of motor oil: 5W30, 10W30, or 10W40. Personally, I use Mobil1 Synthetic 5W30 in my pickup. Synthetic is better for your motor (you can go 5,000 miles between oil changes with synthetic oils) but once you start using it it's better if you stay with it meaning every oil change you use synthetic oil.

Lifters making noise after changing spark plugs and oil (to synthetic oil), previously used 5w30 any help..


spark plugs should not have anything to do with new noise, but the oil probably will. did you put 5w30 in just now? i would not put anything in lighter than 5w30. synthetic oil is not better than regular oil, it just allows you to go longer inbetween oil changes. i would go back to 5w30 and if they are still noisy, try 5w40.

How often do I need to change the synthetic oil in a 2003 jetta tdi? and what grade of oil is best?


Change it every 10k miles. You have to use 5W40 FULL SYNTHETIC oil. Not just any oil! You can buy Shell Rotella T 5w40 or Mobil1 5w40 Turbo Diesel Truck oil at Walmart. Both of these oils meet VW's TDI oil requirements.

I have a mazda 626 , went to get my oil changed and noticed my synthetic 10w30 had been changed to synthetic 5w30 oil. I've never had to specify wich only that I wanted synthetic. My owners manual only...


Nope, it's not a problem. The numbers relate to the viscosity or slippery'ness (if thats a word) of the oil. The first number (5 or 10) is the viscosity of the oil when you first start the car. 5 is more slippery than 10. The second number (30) is the operating viscosity of the oil after your car has warmed up.
Simply put, in the winter your oil thickens when it cools down so you need smoother oil (5w30) when you start the car.
Winter = 5w30
Summer = 10w30
Hope this helps.
