Ask the dealer if this affects the warranty.

Which Oil Should I Use?

A common question is 'Which oil should I use?'

There's three categories of engine oil:
  1. Fully synthetic
  2. Semi synthetic
  3. Mineral
As a general rule of thumb, fully synthetic is the best - and the most expensive.
Semi synthetic is a blend of synthetic and mineral oil, and mineral oil is lifted out a hole in the ground in a bucket.

Oil is also given a rating of 0-30W and 5-40W. There's others, of course. This rating just refers to the viscosity - the thickness of the oil under certain conditions. 0-30W is a thinner oil than 5-40W.

At one time people used to use a thicker oil in their car engine during the winter months and a thinner oil during the summer months.

Fully synthetic 0-30W oil is often specified for engines that have 'zero tolerance'. Here, zero tolerance simply means no space between the metal of the piston and the cylinder wall. The oil must be thin enough to be able to coat the mating metal surfaces and yet be robust enough to withstand the pressures of what is basically pressurised metal to metal contact.

Using semi synthetic oil in a zero-tolerance engine will cause very rapid wear indeed. Topping up a zero-tolerance engine with mineral oil can have catastrophic results. Not only does it not afford protection but it - the mineral oil - will form a 'globule' - a ball - inside the oil sump/pan that will block the oil pump pick-up with absolute catastrophic results - very quickly.

In Europe the Saab 9-5 model had, amongst others, a V8 3000c diesel engine fitted. It was a zero-tolerance engine. Many of these cars ended up with wrecked engines simply because owners had topped up with the wrong oil. And, on a zero-tolerance engine the oil level itself is critical so much so that Saab modified the oil dipstick so that owners overfilled with oil by 1 litre. A zero-tolerance engine doesn't tolerate a 'slightly lower' oil level.

Most drivers wouldn't know if their car was a zero-tolerance engine. If you use fully synthetic 0-30W (or follow the manufacturer's recommendation) you won't go far wrong. You can use fully synthetic 0-30W in your 1956 Cadillac if you wish. It won't harm it.

Other grades of fully synthetic are fully suitable for all non-zero tolerance engines.

The difference between fully synthetic (apart from the price) and semi synthetic and mineral is that of durability. Fully synthetic 'breaks down' slower .. in other words, it lasts longer as a 'lubricant' ... does its job better.

Short journeys destroy engine oil - particularly mineral oil. Toxins and carbons accumulate in the oil and cause it to break down into 'sludge'. Semi synthetic oil is more resistant to breaking down, and fully synthetic is even better.

If you've got a decent car with a decent engine - use fully synthetic 0-30W. If it isn't a 'zero-tolerance' engine use any fully synthetic oil or semi synthetic oil.

If you have an old 1998 4 litre Jeep that burns oil like I have, a cheap mineral oil will do. But do change the oil and filter regularly. Regular oil/filter changes promotes the life of your engine - irrespective of what car you drive - and it really does prevent mechanical problems such as noisy camshafts/engine knocks.

Can i use Penrite 10w-40 semi synthetic oil in my 2002 Honda CRV for one oil change only plus filter change? car has done 248k's with no oil use

You could do that. It is a thicker oil and heavier weight, not usually recommended in the winter time cause it makes it harder to start the car. Your car has high miles thus more wear, I usually use 10w-40 in place of high-mileage oils (cause it has less detergents) unless the car has been using full synthetic oil from the start. I'd say ok, and if it runs sluggish then you can use something like Marvel Oil to thin it down and that will help clean and lubricate your engine too.

Hi i have a question im confused i read back and forth on synthetic oil and can you use it in high mileage engines reason i ask is i just had my oil changed and my mechanic told me that vortec engines...

Best to use Full Syn in all motors-- if you don't mind
the extra price per quart

All the debate & that is all it is- has been going around
for 50 years, on synthetic oils

At 300,000 that motor is done & will use oil regardless
of what you put in it,so the answer is no,the oil has nothing
to do with it

Seems just plain silly for a professional to now after 312,000
to put in synthetic oil,sort of late & just silly,they don't make
money on an oil change they loose money anyway

Wrong oil?

Have the oil changed as it is wrong viscosity oil. It should be 20w -40 or 15w 30. Mixing synthetic and mineral oils is not a good idea as the bases are different and may cause engine problems. Most service departments use mineral oil as synthetic oil is too dear for a normal service and the customer would complain about the price.. Synthetic oil has no real advantage over mineral oil unless you are rallying or racing but in normal driving it is an expensive waste as you have to change the oil at least every 10.000klms to remove the wasted additives the hold water ,carbon, and other combustion by products in suspension to be removed when the oil is drained out.

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

My Sante Fe uses 3 quarts of oil between oil changes. It doesn't leak. Why does it use so much oil? It's been since the dealership decided to use synthetic oil around 70,000 miles. It has 103,000 miles...

Where do you live? Sometimes hotter climates will cause the engine to burn more oil..the hotter the engine runs, the more it will burn,..if you run the air conditioner it will also cause it to loose oil faster...I owned a 2001 Dawooo Lanos (also a Korean buit car) and it did the same lost oil faster then it should (not by leaking) after it hit about 60,000 miles on the odometer...Korean built cars are not the best built cars on the road and after 100,000 miles, I would personally consider selling it before you end up with a bigger problem..I see so many Kia, Daewoo, and Hyundai's in the junkyard that look very nice and new (2000 and up) but you would guess that the motor or transmission have failed
