Well, yes and no, It would depend on the outside temperature, If you live in the desert, it would be perfect. But if you live up north, not so perfect. It would never crank over on a cold morning. Oil is like little tiny ball bearings, the heavier the oil, the bigger the ball bearings, Multi viscosity covers 2 weights, when it is cold in the morning it is thin, 10 w, when it heats up after running, it gets thick, 40w. 10w40 would be a good weight for a small engine, heavy enough when hot, thin enough when cold. Some people use straight 30 weight year round, but it is hot down here in Florida, I use 10w40 in all my cars and trucks. Hope this helps.

What type of motor oil does a 2004 pontiac grand am

usually any name brand such as pennzoil,havoline, or such. just be sure to use the same kind of brand when you do oil change.
it is not good to mix oil because some have different chemicals in it and could cause to break down faster.
10w-40w is a good one for warmer areas.10w-30w is good for winter areas. the last number is the thickness of the oil. they do make thicker and thinner weights. id use like 20w-50w if the car smokes a lot.
make sure the oil has the api sticker on it. some brands are so cheap(like from dollar store-no mame brands), just wasting your money.
make sure also the it has the 10w in front of the other you get; 10w40w..etc
they do make some like just 30w or 40w.
check ads at parts store to get a good deal on oil..lots of places like autozone and such, usually can get lot cheaper than places like walmart or dealerships or such.might want to stock up when you see a good sale for when gas goes up will oil.
10w-40w havoline or pennzoil i recommend for your car.

2000 hyundai accent 1.5 uses about 1 quart of oil per 200 miles, no smoke visible. Is there some kind of oil seperator that might be causing this or is it valve seals and maybe rings? thanks

Check for leaks around the engine which is a sign that the seal may be faulty and needs replacement. Check also if there is oil in the coolant, that could also be a sign that an oil seal is broken.
