I would use whatever the manufacture suggest. Most cars will have the suggested oil use on the oil cap under your car hood. The best thing you can do is change your oil on time and use what is suggested by the people that make the engine. As far as what brand of oil to use, my option is to use any oil that does not have "high mileage" or crazy Teflon additives. Most of these additives (like the Teflon particles) are not small enough to pass across the oil filter and never end up in the engine.

Something that I have been using in all my vehicles (including a 2001 GMC Jimmy with 180K) Is Marvel Mystery Oil. I use it in all my cars and anything with a motor. Its a Oil additive that is a detergent. It will help clean out any deposits or old oil in your engine. It can also be added to your fuel as well.
That's my 2 cents :)

Does a 100% synthetic oil harm or help maintain my 1999 ford explorer with 150k miles on it.what weight and brand of synthetic oil should be used?

Brand makes no difference
Weight, should only be what your vehicle calls for---that should be on the oil filler cap
Nothing wrong with synthetic oils---wouldn't spend the money now,with 150K

I found 2 listings for the 2.0L engine, A and B. The 'A' had no info on oil type, the 'B' stated all temperature ranges require type 'SJ' and 5/30 or 5/40 weight. Because the mileage is 140k, I am wondering how often you must add oil between changes. If you add none, or under a quart, 5/30 is ok, if you must add oil more often, use the heavier weight, 5/40.
