Question about 1990 Chevrolet K2500

Recommended Oil Type

I just bought a Chevy Silverado 2500. Since it is a 1990 with 166K on it, what type of motor oil would you recommend running in it.

Any other recommendations for things that should be checked or replaced due to mileage would be appreciated.

10W-30W oil, at that many miles check the brakes, air filter, tire pressure and all fuid levels, also have it put on a rack and check for any serious oil leaks at engine, trans, and rear axle. do u have any service records? the plugs and fuel filter should have been changed by now.

What type of engine oil for 2007 VW Jetta TDI 1.9 please?


The typical type of oil normally used is 5W-30. and that would do fine in your vehicle. You can refer to your owner's manual for the recommended oil usage. Also check the top of the oil cap on the valve cover, which should also say a recommended oil type.

I hope this helps!

How often do you change the motor oil? The motor oil filter? The automatic transmission oil and filter? What type of motor oil should be used?


Oil change recommended is every 3,000miles / 5000km for local short running around. If you clock up the miles quickly then extend the oil changes to 6,000miles /10,000km
Oil filter is every second oil change.
Use reputable multi grade oil 15W/40 or similar, Do not use standard SAE 30 single grade oil. You do not need to use synthetic / semi-synthetic oils either.

Motor oil type


The owner's manual should tell you what the recommended oil should be. Unless they totally screwed up on your oil viscosity, I don't think it's should be too noticeable. Perhaps they did not put the same oil filter, and put in a cheap filter too?

WHAT TYPE OIL DO I PUT IN 96 CHEVY CAVALIER


I grew up in wisconsin myself and it does make a big difference to what type of oil you use. in your vehicle 5w-30 is recommended however during the summer i use a 10w30 and in winter SAE30 this is in my experience the best way to maintain the performanced of your vehicle and keep the wear and tear to a minimum
