What type of oil viscosity?


The oil viscosity should be that recommended by the manufacturer.

The interval between changes should be that recommended by the manufacturer.

What kind of oil did the buick century custom come from the factory using.


Are you asking about the viscosity or brand? The factory recommended viscosity is sometimes listed on the cover where you add oil. Every GM vehicle I've ever owned called for 5W30 viscosity oil.

Someone recommended that I use 20-50. Oil on my 1999 Honda .accord with 133, 000 on it


I would NOT recommend using 20w-50 oil in your Accord at all. The manufacturers state a certain multi-viscosity oil to use in all their vehicles and you should stay with that. Many cars use a 5w-30,5w-20 oil and some should use a 0w-20 oil. Modern engines have tighter tolerances on the internal moving parts of the engine than engines from the 1970's and 1980's. A 20w-50 oil is way too high a viscosity(thickness) to use in todays engines. The first number, say 5w, is the cold start viscosity of the oil so the engine can start easier and have lubrication in cold(winter) temperatures. The second number, say 30, is the viscosity of the oil when the engine warms up to normal operating temperature. The oils have viscosity modifiers in them so as the engine and oil temperatures change(cold to hot, hot to cold), the engine has the lubrication protection it needs to operate correctly. I recommend using a synthetic blend oil that is found in many of todays engines right from the factory and stay with the viscosity that the manufacturer recommends in the owners manual. If you do not have an owners manual, call the dealer service department and ask them.

I don't have an owners manual, what type of oil do i use in vehicle. I live in a dry climate las vegas i have chevy equinox ls


Oil Viscosity In addition to meeting the SH or SJ classification of the American Petroleum Institute, your oil should be of a viscosity suitable for the outside temperature in which you'll be driving. Oil must be thin enough to get between the close tolerances of the moving parts it must lubricate. Once there, it must be thick enough to separate them with a slippery oil film. If the oil is too thin it won't separate the parts, if it's too thick it can't squeeze between them in the first place either way, excess friction and wear takes place. To complicate matters, cold-morning starts require thin oil to reduce engine resistance, while high-speed driving requires thick oil, which can lubricate vital engine parts at temperatures up to 250°F (121°C). According to the Society of Automotive Engineers' viscosity classification system, an oil with a high viscosity number (e.g., 40) will be thicker than one with a lower number (e.g., l0W). The "W" in l0W indicates that the oil is desirable for use in winter driving. Using special additives, multiple-viscosity oils are available to combine easy starting at cold temperatures with engine protection at turnpike speeds. For example, 10W-40 oil will have the viscosity of l0W oil when the engine is cold and that of 40 oil when the engine is warm. The use of such oil will decrease engine resistance and improve your gas mileage during short trips in which the oil doesn't have a chance to warm up. Some of the more popular multiple-viscosity oils are 5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40, 20W-50, and 5W-50. Consult your owner's manual or a reputable oil dealer for the recommended viscosity range for your vehicle and the outside temperature in which it operates.

I would check the cap to see if it says what viscosity to use or the label in the engine compartment to see what viscosity to use. Also, try the 'Owner' section of the chevrolet.com website to download the manual if possible. Many late model vehicles have this available at the chevrolet.com website for free.

What weight oil should I be using???


now ford has came out with a memo recommending 5w20. Ford Motor Company reports that the company's switch from recommending 5W-30 viscosity motor oil to 5W-20 viscosity motor oil has saved 700 million gallons of gasoline since 2000. By reducing load and internal friction, lighter viscosity 5W-20 motor oils reportedly increase fuel economy by a half mile per gallon. In addition, Ford reports its use of 5W-20 oils has reduced carbon dioxide emissions by about one million metric tons a year.
Note: Ford issued a TSB (technical service bulletin TSB 02-1-9) regarding the 5w20 superseding 5w30 Owners Manual specifications. Applies to the majority of the car products back to the early 1990's.

So in short in your manual it may say 5w30 but now they recommend using 5w20.
if you need further assistance please let me know, Thanks, MIDwest-TEK

What type engine oil does it take?


depends on oil consumption.for this age of car use 10/40 semi synthetic,then if oilburn is more than a pint every 1000 miles switch to 20/50 standard.then when oilburn is a pint to less than 400 miles time for a rebuild.

What does computer p1521 mean? How to correct it?


Computer code "P1521", is set when there is an engine oil condition. Check to see if the recommended old viscosity is being used and if you're following the oil change schedule. The oil could be contaminated or there may be an internal engine condition that may affect oil pressure. All of these conditions can set the code above.
The first thing I would recommend is to change the engine oil using the correct viscosity unless you know that the oil has been changed and it is the correct viscosity. Regardless the dealer or independent shop will have to use a scan tool to check the problem and to reset the light. I hope this will help
