LX. should I use 5w 30 or 10w 30 oil?


lost the operators guide? in the glove box.
katrina, what part of country,?
Key West or Alaska.? (the -4f rule is clear)
the opr. guide explains all that... by climate.
page 5-8 in fact does that.
ill post it now.
and the words.
"• SAE 5W-30
As shown in the viscosity chart, SAE
5W-30 is the only viscosity grade recommended
for your vehicle. However, if it's
going to be -4°F (-20°C) or above and
SAE 5W-30 is not available, you may use
SAE 10W-30.
These numbers on an oil container show
its viscosity, or thickness. Do not use
other viscosity oil such as SAE 10W-40
or SAE 20W-50 under any conditions."

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


ENGINE OIL

You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

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.

Hello, I have accord 2003 2.4l with 99,000 mileage and what kind grade oil i should use? Right now I am using 5w-30.


Oil Viscosity In addition to meeting the SH or SJ classification of the American Petroleum Institute, your oil should be of a viscosity suitable for the outside temperature in which you'll be driving. Oil must be thin enough to get between the close tolerances of the moving parts it must lubricate. Once there, it must be thick enough to separate them with a slippery oil film. If the oil is too thin it won't separate the parts, if it's too thick it can't squeeze between them in the first place either way, excess friction and wear takes place. To complicate matters, cold-morning starts require thin oil to reduce engine resistance, while high-speed driving requires thick oil, which can lubricate vital engine parts at temperatures up to 250°F (121°C). According to the Society of Automotive Engineers' viscosity classification system, an oil with a high viscosity number (e.g., 40) will be thicker than one with a lower number (e.g., l0W). The "W" in l0W indicates that the oil is desirable for use in winter driving. Using special additives, multiple-viscosity oils are available to combine easy starting at cold temperatures with engine protection at turnpike speeds. For example, 10W-40 oil will have the viscosity of l0W oil when the engine is cold and that of 40 oil when the engine is warm. The use of such oil will decrease engine resistance and improve your gas mileage during short trips in which the oil doesn't have a chance to warm up. Some of the more popular multiple-viscosity oils are 5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40, 20W-50, and 5W-50. Consult your owner's manual or a reputable oil dealer for the recommended viscosity range for your vehicle and the outside temperature in which it operates.

I lost my Owners Manual and I need to know what kind of oil I need to use for an oil change- 10W-30 or 10W40?


Either one is fine, one is a little thicker.
Then the multigrade motor oil was made.....multi grade means: a different viscosity (thickness)when cold & hot. *Why use a multi grade oil? Because the first number 20w / 10w /5w / 0w is the viscosity of the oil at startup/ cold temperature which lubricates better on start up getting to places the thicker oil wont on startup - when the motor starts to warm up then you have the second number eg. if your oil is a 10w-30 the motor starts up with the oil thinner at 10 weight and as it warms up to operating temperature its thicker to 30 weight. The reason it has thicker oil is to handle the heat etc. Now on a 80Farenheit day / 30 degree C day that thickness may change a bit but it still thinner than the 30 at startup.
