Manufacturers recommend a particular grade of motor oil for the engine to ensure best operation and fuel economy. That said, yes, you can use other grades....but be advised that they must match the codes (such as SF-CC). 10W-40 is used by many drivers in warmer weather when they are driving long distances and subjecting the engine to highers temperatures and stress. I wouldn't recommend it be used in very cold weather as it will not provide as good a start-up lubrication as the 5W-30.

you have an engine miss, any time the check engine light starts flashing the engine is missing, should be an easy fix sounds like either a bad spark plug or a bad plug wire if you have the codes checked there should be a code telling you what cylinder is missing, but if i were you i would tune up the engine all new plugs and wires and filters......GOOD LUCK

The fuel pump is in the fuel tank.Sit in the car.....turn on the ignition switch to run.....listen very closely to the rear of the car...or have someone kneel down by the back wheel.....you should hear a "prime cycle"......the pump running for 2 or 3 seconds if the key was off for 15 seconds before trying this.If you hear silence you most likely need a fuel pump.Before pulling the tank down....check for power on the gray wire at the fuel tank connector just ahead of the rear axle under the car.Check for power with a test light that will last for 2 to 3 seconds as you turn on the key to run.Power means you really most likely need a pump.No power means you may need a fuse or a fuel pump relay.

The best way to tell is hook it up to a fuel pressure gauge and see if it has the specified pressure for your vehicle.

To check this kind of problem, first you have to know who is blocking you from getting start. Like your safety switch need to be adjust and verify with a scanner that can read the safety switch on and off state. Need more info to carry on with your problem. Good luck and don't listen anything from others before you have to proof each thing you do

I suggest to go to the dealer to have a new key cut from code. Old one is probably worn out and no good to make a copy with.

Chimes are generated by the radio. Unplugging the radio and then plugging it in can activate the security feature in the radio and is very unwise. You can try resetting it by disconnecting the negative battery wire, then plugging the radio in and reconnecting the battery wire. If that doesn't work, check with a dealer to see if they can reset it, but if the radio has been damaged by what you are doing, you may have to replace it.
