MOTOR OIL VISCOSITY RATINGS

Viscosity ratings for commonly used motor oils typically range from 0 up to 50. A "W" after the number stands for "Winter" grade oil, and represents the oil's viscosity at zero degrees F.
Low viscosity motor oils that pour easily at low temperatures typically have a "5W" or "10W" rating. There are also 15W and 20W grade motor oils.
Higher viscosity motor oils that are thicker and better suited for high temperature operation typically have an SAE 30, 40 or even 50 grade rating.
These numbers, by the way, are for "single" or "straight" weight oils. Such oils are no longer used in late model automotive engines but may be required for use in some vintage and antique engines. Straight SAE 30 oil is often specified for small air-cooled engines in lawnmowers, garden tractors, portable generators and gas-powered chain saws.


Basically for your car I would run 5W-30, this keeps you covered in warm and cold climates, 10w-30 is the best choice if you live in a climate with temperatures that never go below 0degre''s Farenheight.

Oil not commimg out ot the rocker arms one side seem to have been running hot


Sounds like its never had an oil change and got clogged up, best thing to do is use an engine flush see if that clears the oil ways. I have just put some diesel fual through my oil before that works really well and will not damage your engine, run the car for about 10 mins half oil half diesel then drop the oil, put some cheap oil in run it again for 10 mins drop the oil and then put some good oil in it.

What kind of oil should i put in my regal?


5w 30 is best for this engine, especially in the colder season.
I recommend Amsoil, Castrol, Or Valvoline are some of the best oils. It's solely up to you. If you have high mileage, then high mileage oil has a better protection and longer life.

Will putting too much oil in the car cause it to shut off


Yes.
1. When the oil level is low it does not start.

2. When oil level is too much it starts but shuts off.

Cheers and be careful.
