Take it is a lawn mower
if the oil ran out then the engine is failed
if B&S , cheaper to replace the motor than to rebuild

Can I use 5w 30 weight instead of 10w30 wait for a


Yes

10W-30 is seldom used- the last 15 years

You can use 0W-30,5W-30

I only use MOBIL 1 Extended (walmart)

I would guess all GM Vehicles have called
for 5W-30 since 1980

Have a 2003 toyota corolla and oil pressure light came on we changed oil and now its on again what could it be?


If you just changed the oil, therefore we can assume that the oil level is correct at this time and that the correct oil viscosity (5W-20 or 5W-30) was used. Are there any unusual noises coming from the engine? Like, maybe "tapping" or "squeaking" sounds? If so, then the oil pump may have gone bad and is not supplying adequate oil pressure to the engine. Continued use of the vehicle can result in serious engine damage. Have the oil pressure checked by a shop ASAP.

If the vehicle is running normally and no unusual noises are heard, then the oil pressure sensor (a.k.a. oil pressure sending unit) may be sending a false signal to the dash "idiot light". Replace the oil pressure switch.

Hope this helps.

Have a Nice Day !!!
