93 k1500 5.0, had a buddy fix an oil leak. stopped the leak. he changed the oil, but he used 15w-40 instead of 5w-30. only ran it for 50 miles. talked to dealer, they told me dump oil, change oil filter.having trouble keeping the the truck on when coming to a complete stop. when idling sometimes just peters out. just prior to dying i hear a hissing noise. any of these things related or do i have two separate problems? any help on these things would be appreciated.

Well maintained a fleet of trucks and ran 20-40W all year long.Years ranging from 88-06 and never has a problem.Sounds like you may have a bad vacume line. Could be a problem with your EGR valve or the IAC (idle Air Control) Valve if equipted.Would start checking the vacume hoses first.Well hope this helps and good luck.

I have 2006 Toyota Highlander, 3.3 VTT-I, with 120,000+ miles on it. I recently got an oil change done here in Sicily. They put 10W-40 motor oil in it. Will this ruin my engine and should I drain it...


with 120,000 + miles on it the 10w-40 oil is correct oil to use
If it was in my shop it would have been 15w-40
older engines need a heavier grade oil to compensate for wear and to keep the oil pressure to the maximum when idling the 5w-30 is for new engines or engines operating in temperatures of 0 or minus temperatures

Which oil is good for my car daewoo nubira 2002 model. like angine oil . like 5w 30, 10w 30, 15w 40 , 20w 50, ............and if i put the 20w 50 grade angine oil so whats happen in my car?like fuel...


You should not put 20w 50 in the car. That is way to thick and it will not be able to circulate through out the engine efficiently. Also does not lubricate the internal parts as needed. That would be used on a more bigger engine. Your car should run fine on 10w 30.

1995 isuzu trooper manual transmission is leaking fluid from the gear box bolt. i was wondering if this is motor oil or is there transmission fluid somewhere i need to fill or check?


Hello smeet3992: The transmission uses 5w-30 for tempretures up to 95 degreese in tempreture. Uses 15w-40 for all tempretures greater then 50 degreese. If you are in an area that has extreme fluctuation in tempretures I would use the 15w-4o engine oil. I also senrt a picture of where to check the oil at. Make sure you pull the right plug. The reverse idler pin has the same size bolt head.
Please rate the quality of your answer as this helps to ensure you recieved the information you asked for. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger358a4b4.jpg
