Use 5w30 oil in this car, preferably a synthetic. The manufacturer recommends this grade of oil and it needs to be changed every 3000 miles.

What engine oil does this car require, and can I substitute


The car doesnt require any type specifically. The grade should be printed on oil cap. If not check owners manual for grade for your temperature at your location.

Oil type for 2006 dodge grand caravan


New cars and truck manufactures recomend differend types of grades of oil when the engine is new. What they don't tell you when the engine receives 30,000 miles on it the grade of oil can be changed for better lubrication. Use 10w30 for normal use upon changing oil.

Oil licking for my doge caravan 1998, how do i repaire or replack


The oil doesn't leak from the head gasket, Unless it is broken. The oil is inside the engine, the head gasket seals out the water from the cylinder walls, and keeps the compression in. No oil, It could be coming from the rocker cover gasket just above the heads. They always leak. The engine sits at a slight pitch to get the oil out and down. And it usually leaks at the rear the most. Changing those gaskets is a job, you have to remove everything up top of the engine to get to them, then seal up the spark plugs too if they are in the covers. I did mine a few years back and they are just starting to leak again. It only has 250,000 miles, go figure. Check it out, hope this helps.

I bought on last December a Lexus ES 300 1998 with a mileage of 47,230 and I used the car more 1,200 miles when the engine presented an inside damage. Before transferring me this car the ex owner has...


these engines are notorious for sludge problems, however that's unusual that an engine with low mileage has an internal problem. the oil itself doesn't matter that much. you should be fine with any brand 5w30 or 10w30. im interested to know what inside damage your talking about.

Any particular quirks to changing the oil in a 1998 V70? I have 160K on it, is it time to go to a different grade of oil?


No different from any other oil change, just reset the oil life on the dash if it has one which i believe it does. The oil grade is 5W-30 on the turbo engines and 10W-30 on the non turbo engines. If you like you can go with the synthetic oil which will give you up to 25,000 miles or 1 year before service, but you do have to replace the oil filter every 5,000 to 7,000 mile and top off the synthetic oil which in the long run be cheaper then changing the oil and filter every 5,000 miles or six months for turbo and 3,000 to 4 months for non turbo engines. Good luck and hope this helps.
