I just went and bought some penz oil 10w30 for my 2.8 v6 and now my dad says it should have 5w30. I bought the 10w30 becuase thats whats on the penz oil sticker in the window. whos right? from what i herd those people that work at penz oil are not the smartest people in town any ways.
I have used 5w30 in my 1986 2.8L engined Jeep Cherokee during really cold winters but most of the time it's 10w30. I also tend to change to oil more frequently because of the small 1/2 qt. AC/Delco PF-47 filter.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
as for the oil filter...have your part store cross ref a QS3980 it is a longer filter (it's the one I use )but it clears and is much easier to install and take out..Fram also uses the 3980 part number..
I,ve been in the Quick Lube biz for 16 yrs.. I need help..lol But the syn..oils are the way to go,I've never notices a power or milage gain but it just holds up so much better. Also check into Redline Oil, it cost a little bit ,but if its good enough for top-fuel cars ,its my choise.
