5W30 is perfectly fine all year (I'm in Binghamton and run that in my 99 A4). On the V6 as well, you don't need to run synthetic oil. The turbo engines require it, but for a V6 you're fine on conventional oil.

1997 audi a4 2.6, v6. my oil light and 3 beeps comes on after driving 5 miles and stayes on untill i turn it off but comes again when i drive on, ive done a oil change and presure test and this is ok, i...

May be a little late but...check your oil filter for the long type not the shorter version for vw..With my 97 a4 if the smaller filter is installed at a lube shop it will set the oil light off.They both fit the audi but the smaller one lacks the oil capacity and starves the engine and sets the light off.Even a autoparts store clerk can make the same mistake as ive been there. they are said to be for the same application but are not.
napa #1191 is correct for the 2.8 is the long oe version.

The thermostaton a 2.8L V6 audi a4 is located behind the cambelt on the driver side. To reach in you need to remove the fornt bumper, slide the radiator upport frame forwards (dont disconnect anything) remove the driver side cambelt cover, SLACKEN the cambelt SLIGHTLY (DO NOT REMOVE IT) then you can slide the thermostat housing out from behind the cambelt followed ny the thermostat.

1997 4Runner oil quantity

For a V6 # Liter engine, you will use a galon and almost half (that is about 6 Liters of oil). I use a Toyota camry V6 3 Liter engine that shares the same engine with the Toyota 4Runner.

1992 Camry 4, What oil should I use?

They say you can, but remember, not a good idea to switch back if you change your mind later. Personally I'd go with 5w30 for winter then maybe 10w30 or 10w40 for summer. All kinds of arguments for and against synthetic, vs standard. personally I prefer standard & change at proper intervals.
