If you have been using standard oil, you need to use a engine flush before you decide to change the type of oil you use. mixing the two can cause gumming and sludge.

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.

I have a 92' Ford Ranger and I need to change my oil. What is the best oil to use?

A synthetic oil like Mobil1 is the BEST, but on a truck that old, it may not be the best choice. Any oil rated SM should be OK, use a name brand 5W30, Shell, Mobil, Castrol, ect.

What kind of oil should i use for 2004 Audi A6 ?

It depends. If you have a turbo engine like the 2.7T, or the 4.2 V8, you should be running a quality synthetic oil like Mobil1. If you have a V6, you're OK running conventional oil (I use Valvoline conventional, 5W30, in my 99 A4 with a 30v 2.8 V6).

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.

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 use Mobil1 5w30 myself but i live in South Dakota with some very cold weather if you are in a warmer climate you can probably use 10w30.
