Oil in diesel engines is more prone to fuel contamination than gas engines are. An oil designated diesel will work fine in a gas engine. As to the sae rating, I tend to prefer a 20W 50 in nearly all engines, or a good synthetic. But if following their recommendations keeps your warranty in effect do as they tell you.

LX. should I use 5w 30 or 10w 30 oil?


lost the operators guide? in the glove box.
katrina, what part of country,?
Key West or Alaska.? (the -4f rule is clear)
the opr. guide explains all that... by climate.
page 5-8 in fact does that.
ill post it now.
and the words.
"• SAE 5W-30
As shown in the viscosity chart, SAE
5W-30 is the only viscosity grade recommended
for your vehicle. However, if it's
going to be -4°F (-20°C) or above and
SAE 5W-30 is not available, you may use
SAE 10W-30.
These numbers on an oil container show
its viscosity, or thickness. Do not use
other viscosity oil such as SAE 10W-40
or SAE 20W-50 under any conditions."

Recommended oil for this vehicle


This is a pretty vague question, however i would suggest a 5W-30, as this is pretty universal; the higer the number the thicker it will be, the thicker it is sometimes the harder it is to run. These numbers are based off the temperature of the oil. So that is why i recomend 5W-30, as the engine is cold the '5' is in place so it is thinner and is easy to start, once the motor gets hot as with the oil, then it gets to the 30 weight oil thickness at that temperature. However if you live in extreme hot or extreme cold i would adjust. higher numbers or just sae 30 for hot, and maybe 10w-30 if you are in say...canada; best of luck

What kind of oil should i use for a 2004 Chrysler town and country?


Driving conditions / oil

(Note all oils are NON-DETERGENT)

City hot / SAE 20W - 50
City warm / SAE 10W - 40
City cold / SAE 5 -30 or 5W-40

Rural hot / SAE 20W - 50
Rural warm / SAE 10W - 40
Rural cold / SAE 5W - 30

Brand does not really matter as the SAE designation makes them all the same other than a few manufacturer specific additives i.e Techron ect.

5 litres of Ford SAE 5w -30w (Formula E ) ...available from Ford (or sometimes a lot cheaper off Ebay).
