This is a old argument. You ask 100 people you will get 100 different answers. The book says 5W-30 in whether colder than 0*F. 10W-30 for warmer temps. 0*F and higher. For engines 2002 - 2005 use 5W-20.

Don't have my owner's manual with me and need to know what type of oil to put back in the engine

The standard oil used in newer vehicles is SAE 10W/30. It is OK to mix oil brands but not recommended to mix different weights. Please rate this answer, thanks.

My Oil light has flashed at me & binged. How do I know what oil to put into the car?

If your oil is not low and your oil light is flashing I recomend you find someone who can do an oil pressure test, those vehicles have been known to clog up the oil pickup screen and starve the engine for oil. if your car has the 2.0 liter engine I recomend 5w 30 oil its good for all temp ranges.

I have a 2004 santa fe what kind of motor oil and multi grade you recomend for this SUV thanks

Use exactly what weight is listed in your owner's manual or on the oil fill cap. More than likely you will find it requires 5w20 weight. I personally use Pennzoil and have for over 30 years with not one internal engine problem. But any major brand will be good. Also very important is the filter. Use a quality filter such as Purolator, Wix, or Bosch and avoid cheap filters. I personally use Purolator Pure One filters. Change your oil and filter every 5,000 miles and your engine will give you great service. Also change the Air Filter every 30,000 miles as it is very important to keep it clean. Change your fuel filter, if changeable, every 50,000 miles. Some vehicles have permanent fuel filters.

Using different weight oil then mfg. suggest

10W30 should be fine... not sure if you know what those numbers mean... basically cold it will be 10 weight when it warms up 30 weight.... in cold climates that's important for starting the motor.

2001 dodge caravan sport 3.3 need to know what weight oil it take

The correct oil weight is 5W20, but 5W30 can be used also. Be consistant when using oil, try to use the same brand and always use the same viscosity. This vehicle requires 4.5 liters of engine oil.
