Coming on colder weather i would use a 5w30 oil,10w30 is fine but the thicker 5w30 will get you quicker lubrication to the top end when the engine is cold and the same protection when the engine has warmed up.

SOURCE: Which motor oil to use

10w-40 is going to be slight better for your 190,000 mile engine especially in this warm weather-and it would have a slightly better tendency at resisting leakage, again at higher temps.

SOURCE: should I use 10w30 or 10w40 oil

10w30 is heavier oil for hotter temp. 5w30 is usually good all year round on newer vehicles, specially in winter. But if you have excessive consumption use 10w30.

In older vehicles I do not recommend 5/30, with this, you need changed oil every 3000 miles for 2 oil changes then oil light came on having low oil pressure. To use 10/30 in winter and 10/40 in summer and have not had a problem.

Hope helped.

What type of oil does a 2002 jaguar x-type take? I was never given a manual.


The car takes 5w-30 semi synthetic oil. However, if you have never put synthetic oil in the car I would recommend using regular oil. I would also advise you check with your local jaguar dealer. The reason for this is if your car is not use to that kind of oil from day one it could cause seal leaks.

What kind of motor oil does a 1998 Plymouth voyager use


the default setting for all gasoline powered motor vehicles is 10W30. you should look in your owners manual to see if the manufacturer recommends anything else. at that age there is really not much you can do in the way of harm, except run it without oil.

How often do you change the motor oil? The motor oil filter? The automatic transmission oil and filter? What type of motor oil should be used?


Oil change recommended is every 3,000miles / 5000km for local short running around. If you clock up the miles quickly then extend the oil changes to 6,000miles /10,000km
Oil filter is every second oil change.
Use reputable multi grade oil 15W/40 or similar, Do not use standard SAE 30 single grade oil. You do not need to use synthetic / semi-synthetic oils either.

Motor oil type


The owner's manual should tell you what the recommended oil should be. Unless they totally screwed up on your oil viscosity, I don't think it's should be too noticeable. Perhaps they did not put the same oil filter, and put in a cheap filter too?

Oil filter in civic 97


If you go to a reputable motor factor,
you can only be sold the correct filter for the civic.
As there are soo many variables in engine type, it's almost impossible to tell, oil volume, or which type filter.
However, I will say, be sure that you don't mix semi-synthetic oil, and mineral oil.
Oil changes should be undertaken every 30,000 miles, (unless under extra work load, (in which case, slightly more regularly))

Otherwise, 10/40 or 15/40 grade oil, is perfectly fine.
The trick to not overfilling the oil, is simply just to take your time, clean the dip stick and retry, until you have the correct reading.
