I would only use synthetic oil if there is a sticker on the engine compartment or the manual says that it is recommended.

I would use conventional oil unless otherwise specified.

Just have it changed every 3,000 mi. along with the filter and lube.

Synthetic or conventional oil

Synthetic are better oils for your car life.Conventional oils are stanard for most cars but create wear and tear to your motor.Synthetic oils have less larger oil molecules.That cause less friction to your engine making it live longer and less maintance for you.Conventional oils have mixed molecules that create friction to your motor.Conventional molecules look like o0oo0o00oo.While synthetics molecules look like ooooooo.Synthetics oils can increase your fuel economy giving you extra money.Synthetics are cheaper for the consumer because you change your oil less than conventional oils.If you are changing from conventional oil to synthetics change your oil filter to synthetic also.

Is it safe to put Valvoline synthetic 5W 30 oil in a Pontiac Grand Am 4 Cyl 2003 car with other oil already in car?

It depends on if the oil already in the car is synthetic of conventional. If the oil in the car is synthetic already you will be fine adding that. If it is conventional you will want to do a complete oil change and change the filter.

Hope this helps.

What is the recommended weight engine oil for a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with a 4.0L 6 cylinder engine?

Manufacturer calls for 10w 30 for that engine. However you will get more life from it if you use a 10w 40 or a good synthetic with a similar designation or even higher such as 20w50.(synthetic only).
Along with any organic oil, it is a good idea to use marvel or lucas additives. Do not use cheap oil. Most are paraffin based and will cause sludge problems.

Can you use 5w30 in a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo?

Unless you live in an extremely cold climate (sub or close to sub zero) I'd recommend using at least a 10w 40 oil. The first number indicates how well the oil pours (flows) at freezing, the second is how well it protects at operating temperature. Your other option is to use a 10W 40 synthetic which actually flows and protects far beyond the #'s on the container on both ends of the scale. One reason some manufacturers have specified a lower first number is because they feel that will keep the piston rings free.
In reality, any good oil will do that (non-paraffin base) and any of the synthetics will do it better. I live in an area where we get both very cold weather and also some very hot weather. I use a 20w 50 synthetic and have never had an oil related problem (my engines regularly go over 350K and vehicles are replaced for other non engine related reasons such as body rust)

OIl leak in 2001 Grand Cherokee Laredo

valve cover gasket is like $20 and a do it yourself job, just buy a manual like a chiltons from an auto parts store. if it was valve cover, the smoke would be coming from engine, not tailpipe.

rear seal is in between engine and tranny, this would cause oil to leak on ground, but not to burn

if smoke is coming from tailpipe, your piston rings might be going bad. that is an expensive repair, but switching to synthetic oil may give you several more years of life out of the piston rings, synthetic oil has a way of soaking into bad piston rings and temporarily making them like new again, unless they are already too far gone.
