I would use 10 W 40 oil in it. If you are in a super cold area use 5 W 30 in it. Castrol GTX is an excellent brand, you can use your personal favorite brand if you like. Avoid using store brands and stick with the brand names with oil. You will need to change the oil filter too when you change the oil, and you can get oil filters at any auto parts store. It is also a good idea, to change your air, and fuel filter regularly too. Figure out what you are going to do with your old oil before you drain it. Ask the auto parts store where you get the filter if they take old engine oil for recycling. Old 1 gallon milk jugs or old antifreeze jugs are great temporary containers to hold old oil.

If it is a gas engine and not a diesel I would recommend a 5W-30W or a 10W-40W. Make sure they have the API certifications on the back. Any auto zone, checker, or pep boys would stock it and be able to answer your questions.

My 2003 cadillac cts automatic transmission will not change gears pulls off slowly but will reach high speed


please do not have your transmission flushed , have someone take the oil pan off and replace the filter as well and what ever trans oil you take out replace it as well . no automotive repair shop will warrenty your trans if it should suddenly stop working , but just for your satisfaction ask the transmission repair shop who flushs trans if they guarantee it and have them put it in writing . ive never understood why flush dirty oil and leave the dirty filter in the trans , it collected all dirt and metal wear which is what is causing it to plug up causing it to restrict the oil flow

no you have to drop your gas tank clean it out. if you didn't start then just clean gas lines. if you started it then you need a new engine. the sugar gets in the engine and turns to syrup. bad engine.

My 2002 jeep tranmission over temp comes on and off while on my way from work just had a oil change about 1 month ago and had tranmission flush in september what dose this mean


Having once owned a trans repair shop,
I would prefer you not flush the system

Due to the vehicles age ,and not knowing
if the fluid was changed every 30,000 miles

My Past Professional Opinion tells me your
trans is most likely slipping. ,thus over heating

You could check the fluid level but that won't do
much.

Your most likely are close to a rebuild situation

Figure about $1700.00

Numerous issues with my 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo


The oil leaks, just keep the levels full. The engine mounts, unless they are torn apart, let them ride. The front axles, let them ride, its going to cost the same now or later, they need to be replaced. I would FIX the coolant leak. ASAP. once you overheat or do damage to the engine, the whole truck is scrap.
