You can use anything you want
however, 5w30 is advised by Nissan
limitations is that 10w30 will be thicker in the winter and may cause harder starting and/or bearing failure due to lack of oil on start up

but depending on how many miles you already have.... 10w30 should not be a big deal!!!

I have a 2002 Nissan Sentra spec-v ser 2.5 cvtc manual replaced battery & the engine cranks but will not start. I've replaced the 80a battery IGN fuse & the 120a battery fuse but did not...

I have a 2003 Nissan Sentra SER SPEC-V and have done all my own work. When the battery was replaced, was the Positive battery terminal taken off first, before the negative terminal? whenever doing work on a car with a ECM, the rule is: Negative terminal is ALWAYS taken off first, then the positive terminal. After changing battery, the positive terminal is put on first and then the negative terminal is put on last. I am not saying that you have an ECM problem but they can be damaged if you take off the positive terminal first.
Do you have any "check Engine Light" code issues? If you do, and you have access to an OBD2 code reader, check if any trouble codes come up. If you do not have access to one, you can go to an Auto Zone or other parts outlet and they will read it for free. Confirm that you have or do not have any Trouble codes. Let me know what you find out.

The engine on a 1996 Saturn SL uses SAE 5w-30 engine oil. The recommended oil-change interval for this engine is every 3,000 miles or three months, whichever comes sooner.
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
