What kind of oil did the buick century custom come from the factory using.

Are you asking about the viscosity or brand? The factory recommended viscosity is sometimes listed on the cover where you add oil. Every GM vehicle I've ever owned called for 5W30 viscosity oil.

What kind of oil do i put in my 89 toyota 4x4 truck

check engine specs for the area you are operating in as the viscosity will determine the correct grade of oil ie cold 5-15 sae or 20-50 hot
the same applys for trannys and diffs but the sae rating will be higher.

What kind of engine oil for 1996 BMW 328 I sport

A good quality multi-viscosity oil. The best viscosity range depends on the temperature where you live but for most climates, 10W-30 is best for an e36 328. I used 20W-50 for many years in the warm Sacramento climate, but I had some odd performance on cool mornings that I attributed to the old VANOS not moving smoothly with the heavier oil, so I switched to 10W-30 and the problem seems better.
This car came with conventional oil in it. Some e36 owners have switched to synthetic motor oil with no problems. My experience with trying a synthetic (Mobile 1) in my two '97 328s was not good so I switched back to Castrol GTX. When I tried synthetic oil in my two '97 328s and my 91 Volvo, all three cars developed oil leaks almost immediately. However, other owners report no problems at all with synthetic oil.

I have a very simple question. I have a 1990 Nissan Hardbody 5-speed and I need to know what kind of oil would be best to use. Like 10w-30, 10w-40, etc. Thanks for your time.

With any multi viscosity oils the first # represent the viscosity(thickness) at start up temp. The second # represents the viscosity at operating temp. The smaller the # the less the viscosity. So a 10w30 starts at a 10 weight and turns into a 30 weight. The 10w40 starts at a 10 weight and turns into a 40 weight. the w stand for winter. Most people use multi viscosity oils. While some don't likel them they opt to use a SAE30 (straight 30). It is 30 weight all the time. But in most areas in the U.S you should use a multi viscosity oil

What weight of oil should I use on a 2003 KIA Sorento?

5-20w is what the Manufacturer recommends and I would stick with that but go to synthetic as it is just better and really does not cost that much more as you can extend the service interval. This has the added benefit of less hassle in your life as well.

What does computer p1521 mean? How to correct it?

Computer code "P1521", is set when there is an engine oil condition. Check to see if the recommended old viscosity is being used and if you're following the oil change schedule. The oil could be contaminated or there may be an internal engine condition that may affect oil pressure. All of these conditions can set the code above.
The first thing I would recommend is to change the engine oil using the correct viscosity unless you know that the oil has been changed and it is the correct viscosity. Regardless the dealer or independent shop will have to use a scan tool to check the problem and to reset the light. I hope this will help

I need to add oil to my Mazda MX-3. This is my 1st car and I'm unsure of what type to use.

Normally on the oil filler cap or oil dipstick you will find a recommendation for the oil viscosity such as "10w40" or "5w20". The first number indicates what the "thickness" or viscosity of the oil is during warm weather conditions and the second indicates the cold weather weight of the oil. Hence "10w40" actually stands for "10 ... winter 40." Check to see what the recommended viscosity is for your MX-3 on the filler cap first. I believe the recommended weight for the MX3 is 5w20 but this might be different depending on the year. One thing that is very important though: Studies by Castrol, who are very proud of their synthetic oils, clearly state that it is a very bad idea to put synthetic motor oil in a rotary engine. Therefore it is highly recommended that no matter what viscosity of oil you use, you should be certain to read the oil container carefully to ensure that it contains no synthetics. Personally I have always run either mobil or valvoline in all my performance engines with very good results. I have blown three engines on Castrol synthetic oils, and literally had one vehicle engine (a 276 CI V6) explode running Castrol Syntec. In each case (except the exploded engine since there was little left to inspect) I found large chunks of carbonized solidified burned oil (and by large I mean the size of walnuts or bigger) inside my oil pans. Back to the subject though, simply verify the viscosity on the filler cap or the dipstick. If you don't see it there, you will definitely find it on a label affixed above the radiator or inside the hood. Once you get the right viscosity just make sure to buy a good brand of non-synthetic oil. Also don't trust "in house" brands of oil, such as "Advance auto parts oil" or "Fastrac oil". Many of those are recycled filtered oils which have been used, recycled, filtered and have additives mixed in to "restore life" to them.

Depends on the tempurate where you live,

see this link for some great info:


Viscosity ratings for commonly used motor oils typically range from 0 up to 50. A "W" after the number stands for "Winter" grade oil, and represents the oil's viscosity at zero degrees F.
Low viscosity motor oils that pour easily at low temperatures typically have a "5W" or "10W" rating. There are also 15W and 20W grade motor oils.
Higher viscosity motor oils that are thicker and better suited for high temperature operation typically have an SAE 30, 40 or even 50 grade rating.
These numbers, by the way, are for "single" or "straight" weight oils. Such oils are no longer used in late model automotive engines but may be required for use in some vintage and antique engines. Straight SAE 30 oil is often specified for small air-cooled engines in lawnmowers, garden tractors, portable generators and gas-powered chain saws.

Basically for your car I would run 5W-30, this keeps you covered in warm and cold climates, 10w-30 is the best choice if you live in a climate with temperatures that never go below 0degre''s Farenheight.

Hope this helps
