      *5W 30 Synthetic blend, Not FULL synthetic but this.
      Look up the Make and Model Number for the car or ask someone for help. Usually a book at any place or someone who can best assist, depending on where YOU go, Mo. xxoo

      Mobile One is the best full synthetic on the market imho. It really does better than conventional and blends

    • 26d

      Alright, guess I'll go with mobil one

  • All oil has to meat certain standard so you should be safe no matter what you pick as for filters definitely go with what you already have on it but all that being said your talking a extra $20 in experience on a moter worth 3500 to replace
