While it is always best to go with the manufacturers specification in my opinion the 5w30 will still work just fine.
The 30 weight is designed to stay thicker at higher temperatures.
But some manufacturers are concerned about the additives that it takes to make it work that way.
They say the additives have the potential to cause harm over time.
But in my opinion this would be more prevalent in an oil with a wider range. For example a 0w40 or a 10w50.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Is it ok to use 10w30 oil for 2004 buick lesabre custom instead 5w30?

If 5w30 is recommended, depending on the climate and temp where you live 10w30 will be fine.keep in mind that 10w30 is a little thicker so in cold climates it takes a little longer to get moving

Good brand of 10W30 or 5W30 the 5W30 is a little lighter oil for cold weather. Both is ok. Just don't buy a cheap brand of oil . It won't stand up as well as a good brand.

Can i use 5w30 instead of 5w20 oil on a 2006

you can but not recommended. the reason for the thinner oil is the tolerances in the bearing races on these engines are very tight, requiring thinner oil. 5w30 is ok for sure if you are going synthetic.

I have a 84 mercuray grand marquis the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor its getting harder and harder to come to a complete stop.

Bad master cylinder you may have a bad brake line/hose or leaking caliper/wheel cylinder . Check master cylinder to see if it filled if it is then there is NOT a leak and you have a bad MASTER CYLINDER. Change bleed and this should take care of this problem.Good luck nd thanks for using FIX YA
