Question about 2008 Dodge Caliber
I have a quick question on Oil viscosity for a 2007 Dodge Caliber.
I performed an oil change on a 2.4 liter Caliber R/T and put 5W30
Valvoline. When I replaced the cap I noticed that it specified 5W20.
Will the 5W30 do any damage to the engine over the course of 3,000 miles ?
The car is driven in Delaware where it rarely goes below 40 degrees.
I'd hate to waste perfectly good oil, but will be more attentive in the future..
Please let me know and Thanks
No it will not cause any harm over the corse of 3000 miles. 5w30 is just a little thicker. 5 is the thickness when oil is cold. 20 or 30 is thickness when oil i hot, it will be ok just dont do any hotroding. only down part is that if the dealer finds out it will void the warranty.
