All ways follow the drivers manual, It will show a lighter weight oil for cold climates and a higher weight oil for hotter climates . Brand of oil is not important , specs are, try a good injector cleaner such as Inter-Ject clean and cure, for a smokey exhaust.

Can you use 5w20 instead of 5w30 engine oil when they reccomend 5w30

Use only the oil weight on the oil cap or owners manual if the cap does not list the oil weight. Most older vehicles called for eather 10w30 or 5w30 depending on the ambient temp. In the past 10 or so years, manufacturers updated engines for better fuel efficiency by tightening tolerances in the engines, thereby needing a lighter oil weight to provide sufficient lubrication for the parts So manufacturers started requiring 5w20 oil in their engines. I work as an Auto Care Technician at Walmart, and we will NOT do an oil change for any weight other than the recommended weight by the manufacturer. If it calls for 5w20, we use 5w20, regardless of what the owner wants. This is to avoid any possible engine oil related problems. People will blame someone else if they have a warranty issue the dealer refuses to honor for whatever reason, and it would go back to the last place the vehicle had the oil changed at. So therefore at Walmart, we follow the manufacturers recommended oil weight for all oil changes.

What are the fluid capacities and types/weights for a 2001 KIA Optima 4-dr. with a L4 gasoline engine and 4-spd. automatic? Need exact capacities for engine, coolant and transmission, as well as oil...

Hey, i have been using 5W-30 for the longest time and its been fine, it should say in owners manual but dont have it. The capacity should be around 4 quarts give or take half a quart, just make sure u add in as needed and dont overfill it. If you buy one of those yellow gallon or so jugs of 50/50 coolant, i used about half of that in mine. Hope that helps, have no idea for transmission. I would just leave the transmission fluid in since im guessing u have a lot of miles on the car.

Hi, I'd like to know which oil I need for engine

Engine oil is a personal preference, brand anyway. You can use any kind of oil you want, all of it is tested and has to conform to the industry standards. The weight of the oil is what is important. Depending on where you live, the temp of the oil is rated in weight, 10 w40 is great multi viscosity oil, for high temp. Up north, straight 30 weight would be ok. Synthetics are ok, some people don't like them, they are old school, they change their oil regularly. If you change you oil every 3000 miles, you should never have a problem with the bottom of your engine.
Your transmission is different. A lot of newer transmissions are sealed to the owner. The dealer wants to get in there, If you don't have a dipstick to check the fluid with, you have to pull the plugs out of the side of the tranny to check it. One is for fill, the other is level. Transmission fluids are numerous, you have to get the right fluid in there. Most say what it is on the dipstick, but if you don't have one, you will have to go by the owner's manual. Transmissions go without fluids for long periods. Most people don't ever check them till something goes wrong. Check it out, hope this helps.

Were do i put transmission fluid in the tranny 1997 cadi catera

Your Catera has a sealed for life transmission so therefore on one of these models there is no dipstick and you cannot check the fluid level yourself. The dealer can check the level but that is only necessary if you have a leak. Use a premium grade oil and a quality filter such as AC/Delco, Wix, Purolator, or Bosch. The correct weight oil is listed in your owner's manual and possibly on the oil fill cap or dipstick.
