the default setting for all gasoline powered motor vehicles is 10W30. you should look in your owners manual to see if the manufacturer recommends anything else. at that age there is really not much you can do in the way of harm, except run it without oil.
cut away the rusted steel and have a repair plate fabricated and installed using automotive grade hardened steel rivets designed for this type of repair, this requires special tools and a good knowledge of metal working
Either one is fine, one is a little thicker.
Then the multigrade motor oil was made.....multi grade means: a
different viscosity (thickness)when cold & hot. *Why use a multi
grade oil? Because the first number 20w / 10w /5w / 0w is the viscosity
of the oil at startup/ cold temperature which lubricates better on
start up getting to places the thicker oil wont on startup - when the
motor starts to warm up then you have the second number eg. if your oil
is a 10w-30 the motor starts up with the oil thinner at 10 weight and
as it warms up to operating temperature its thicker to 30 weight. The
reason it has thicker oil is to handle the heat etc. Now on a
80Farenheit day / 30 degree C day that thickness may change a bit but
it still thinner than the 30 at startup.
Sugiero revisar el nivel de aceite (en frio), verifica si es necesario rellenar. La falla probable es que el nivel este al limite de advertencia del sensor de nivel de aceite, por eso enciende cuando lo menciona.
Usa las recomendaciones que da el fabricante para mantener los niveles de fluidos.
Fig. 1: Look for the API oil identification label when choosing your engine oil
Usually the specs are located in the owners manual. It tells you the grade and amount of oil required on an oil change. If the specs are not in the owners manual, you can look at the oil fill port on the engine and normally has the recommended grade of oil. Otherwise, see if you can get your hands on a service manual. Good Luck.22
