SOURCE: can i use 5w30 instead of 5w20 oil on a 2006

you can but not recommended. the reason for the thinner oil is the tolerances in the bearing races on these engines are very tight, requiring thinner oil. 5w30 is ok for sure if you are going synthetic.

Is it ok if I used 5w30 instead od 5w20 in my 2004 Mercuray Gran Marquis

While it is always best to go with the manufacturers specification in my opinion the 5w30 will still work just fine.
The 30 weight is designed to stay thicker at higher temperatures.
But some manufacturers are concerned about the additives that it takes to make it work that way.
They say the additives have the potential to cause harm over time.
But in my opinion this would be more prevalent in an oil with a wider range. For example a 0w40 or a 10w50.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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.
