SOURCE: Oil type to use

either will be adequate. if you live in a hot temp zone run the 20/40 and if it cools off (freezing) during winter change to 5/30. Moderate year round your 20/40 will be fine. I would also use a bottle of Lucas Racing Oil treatment with the change. Don't forget your filter. I also suggest using full synthetic, yeah it costs more but worth it.

It's depend on the weather condition of your area and is your motor a leaker.

10W40 should be fine,if you are live in above freezing area

10W30 for colder climate

15w-40 if your motor has a small leak AND drive in above freezing area.

SOURCE: can I use Castrol 20W-50 engine oil in 2004 Range

I think you should wait until you know the ambient temp will not go below about 50. If you've ever seen a 20w50 at or near freezing temperatures, it is as thick as honey. This is hard on oil pumps and it take a few second longer for the pump to start building pressure. I think a better choice might be to put in an additive like Lucas or STP. These additives tend to cling to bearings and reduce wear at engine start-up.

Good morning, pls what's differents Between high mileage oil mobil 1 10w-40 and Mobil 1 life 0w-40,i want to service my Honda CRV 2001 Engine Mileage on it is 143010,pls adivce

There is very little difference. The 0W-40 is simply a little 'lighter' and it only affects the engine on starting. Not sure where you live but either would be fine in a car that has on done 143000 (KM?)

My 1999 e- class burns oil Mobile 1 0W-40 where as the engine oil that was put in the US did not burn. Now that the car is in use in Nigeria what do you advice me to use?

Switch to non synthetic oil, of the CORRECT WEIGHT for your engine (specified in manual and on oil cap). and see of that stops the consumption.
There is a semi synthetic available from Castrol, called high mileage blend. This oil actually helps consumption issues.

What weight oil is used for a 1984 2wd toyota pickup

10w 40 - 20w 50 is good depeding on the mileage. If it is higher mileage, I would use the heavier oil(20w 50). If the engine has been rebuilt or is well maintained, low mileage, use the lower weight oil. Any quality brand will work. If you decide on synthetic, you will be stuck with synthetic! Royal Purple or Lubro Moly makes really great products to give longevity to your engine. It will come with a bigger price tag though.

Wats the best motor oil for a 94 toyota camry with 100,000 miles... 15W-40,20W-40, 20W-50

Climate has as much to do with your choice of motor oil as the amount of miles on the engine. If you live in a cold climate and your winter temps are often below freezing, you'll want to go with a lighter oil that will circulate better in the cold temperatures. Conversely, in a hot climate, a heavier oil that won't break down in viscosity would be a good choice. As far as the mileage goes, most oils are about the same and as long as you change your oil often, whatever oil you choose based on climate should suit you and the car well. I hope this clarifies your question. Best of luck!
