You may have caused some damage by letting the oil level get so low but no damage will result by mixing full sybthetic with a synthetic blend. I don't believe 10W40 is the rated grade oil for your car. You should always use the recommended grade oil the manufacturer states.

What type of oil should be used in a 2004 Toyota V6 4runner, natural or synthetic and what weight?


Any good API (American Petroleum Institute) approved 10w-30 0r 10w-40 oil is factory recommended. The question of Synthetic or not is a matter of personal prefs. If the rig has high mileage I might lean towards one of the synthetic blends instead of full synthetic. Syns are good, but if vehicle hasn't been using it since new, adding it may alter wear pattern of moving parts and start using oil. A blend is the best of both worlds.

The best recommended oil for lincoln 1997 4.6 L V8 with over 300,000 miles also what would be the most fuel efficent recommended brand spark plug


originally it calls for 5w-30, but you could probably go to 10-30 or even 10w-40 since at 300,000 miles it seems logical that clearances are not what they used to be-and congratulations, that is some achievement!

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


ENGINE OIL

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.

How many quarts of oil does a 81 ford ranger xlt take.


More than likely it takes 4.5 quarts or possibly 5 with oil/filter change. But to make sure there is an easy way to find out. Park the vehicle on a level surface. Drain all the oil out and change the filter. Now pour in 4 quarts of the correct weight oil, and start the engine. Let it run for 30 seconds and then shut down for 30 minutes. Check the level of the oil and add as necessary to fill it up. Probably wil take 1/2 or 1 quart. Warning: Do not overfill!

Oil specifications


The motor oil from the factory is motocraft synthetic blend 5w-30 for normal conditions and motocraft synthetic blend 5w-20 for cold environments. But any synthetic blend or full synthetic of equal weight will do just fine and you will require 5 quarts of oil. DO NOT USE A THICKER WEIGHT OIL, OIL ADDITIVES OR NON SYNTHETIC. Thicker oil like 10w-30, 10w-40, 20w-50 will not be thin enough to lubericate the tighter clearences of the motor and coventional oil breaks down faster than a synthetic blend or synthetic. And be sure to change the oil every 5,000 miles
