Multi viscosity oil use is dependant on the average temperature whare you will be driving. Read the can/bottle for recomended temperature range for the oil you are looking to use.

Can I use 5w 30 weight instead of 10w30 wait for a


10W-30 is seldom used- the last 15 years

You can use 0W-30,5W-30

I only use MOBIL 1 Extended (walmart)

I would guess all GM Vehicles have called
for 5W-30 since 1980

What type of oil should be used with a 1990 Jeep Wrangler 4-Cylinder? Would SAE 10W-30 be okay?

Oil is always a somewhat controversial topic.So many people have so many different opinions of brands of oil, blends and weights to run. Personally, I dont deviate to much from the factory recommendations in my car. My logic is they have tested the cars durability with the oil and would have stood behind warranty claims in the earlier years of the cars life. That being said, 5w-20 is the latest recommended oil.

That aside the history of oil for the jeeps originally started with recommending 10w 30 to 5w 30 to 5w 20.

Good luck.

Type of engine oil

Manufacturer calls for a 10w 30 oil. In all my Jeeps I run a 10w 40 oil with a container of lucas oil stabilizer. (I get way over 300K from all my engines)
I use synthetics though because the pour point is actually much lower than the 10 number and the protection actually is greater than the 40 number at temp, and the oil is practically immune to thermal breakdown.
As far as change intervals, you can change it at between 3,000 and 4,000 miles, with synthetics you can go actually as far as 10,000 miles with a filter change at the mid point. Most people are comfortable just going 5,000 and changing it though.
Filters are important as well...use a filter with the smallest micron rating and the largest internal surface area you can find.
There are as many opinions on oil and change intervals as there are pages in "war and peace" but I have done extensive research in this area due to my involvement in extreme horsepower (over 7,000hp) race engines. Though the oil in those is changed after every 1/4 mile pass, the properties of any lubricant are tested way beyond any normal limits.
The bottom line being, that synthetics last, conventional oils just don't.
And don't' forget....the race mobile has to be towed everywhere....used synthetics in the truck as well!!!
Good luck with your Jeep!!!

Changed my plugs jeep wrangler 4.0 now my oil pressure reads maxed out at 80 psi. all the time while engine is running.

Sounds like a bad oil sending unit...or maybre you knocked the wire off, or it's grounded when changing the plugs.

I have an '02 jeep wrangler. Straight 6, 4.0 L

if this vehicle has a high millage then you have worn bearing if the oil pressure go's to low then this would be the problem, if not then you should have your lifters replaced but check oil pressure if the noise comes back when the oil pressure drops then you need to over haul your engine. if this information has been useful please let use know good luck

Oil turning black after 800 km. on 2000 in-line 6 Jeep Charokee

if your jeep is a diesel it is normal for the oil to turn black, if the jeep is a petrol, then that is not normal, try using engine flush before a oil change, and make sure that you change the oil filter while the sump plug is off, this will make sure that all the oil is drained, the oil filter does have about .75 liters of oil.

Check engine light

He should have put a thinner oil instead of a thicker oil. He actually should have done the opposite usually, you should use 10w-40 in warmer climates or summer and 10w-30 or 5w-30 in the winter or colder climate. Check amount of oil in system and make sure it NOT too much oil in car or reduce thickness of oil. Good Luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA
