Why not? You can use any weight you want. But,,, I run oil that is with the weather, We live in FL, and it gets hot here. 10w40 min. Multi-viscocity, It means your oil starts out at 10 weight cold, and as it warms up , it's 40 weight. The beads in the oil expand. A lot of people up north run straight 30 weight, I would want something thinner in there when it is cold out. So the multi stuff works great. Hope this helps.

Is it 10W-40 or 15W-40 Engine oil for 1998 Nissan Bluebird. Many Thanks Suman Roy

Either one will not damage the engine. If there is less than 50,000 miles on it then stick with 10W40. Higher mileage engines will do better on 15W40
