It wont hurt anything, however if you live where its cold, i recommend replacing it as soon as you can with the correct weight oil.

SOURCE: what type of oil does a 1994 toyota corolla use?

you can use 10w 30 or 5w 30. 5 is going to be better for cold locations and is the more universal of the two and 10 is going to be good as long as you don't go much below freezing.

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

Look on the oil fill cap. Write down what it says then call around to find out who has this class of oil.You might even call the Chevy dealer and ask for the service manager, ask him .I like the Castrol Syntec 10w-30 for my 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo.
