you MUST run EXACTLY what the manufacturer calls for. and they don't call for 10w40

doesn't it say on the oil fill cap? I's only use 5w30 Mobil 1 full synthetic. 220,000 miles on my aunt's 1998 and no failures what so ever. She lives in Tampa and bought the car new. She's always used Mobil 1 synthetic since the first oil change. She has the oil changed every 5-6000 miles

you can use what ever oil you want. if you don't know the difference between 5w-30 and 10w-30, go to ANY oil company web page and find their technical information. I don't see any reason for me to rewrite what it readily available from a more reliable source.

for just about any oil question you have, go the site of bobistheoilguy. read all of his info and then take his test at the end. you'll learn stuff about oil you never thought of. and for anyone living where it gets cold, go with full synthetic. it is better than dino, especially in the cold. this stuff flows like water in july, when it's -20 degrees F outside. takes a huge load off the starter, alternator and battery in the cold.
