janice r Hi you can use 10W30 all year around and that is acceptable .. If you live in a very hot climate in summer try 10W40 for summer & 10W30 for winter .. In reality the mechanic my be asking what type of oil natrual ( although no oil is complety natrual any more ) or synithic . Synithic is twice the price and can extend oil changes .. I use natrual and change every 3000 miles . Some new cars will tell you to change every 5000 . But the old rule of 3000 is very good for the internal engine parts .. As for brand I use Penn. but any good brand oil is ok ... Just Do Not use re-cycled oil .. And change your filter also your motor should be hot when you change oil. This lets any heavy impurties drain with the oil .. Good Luck ...

5W-30 or 10W-30. They're asking about whether you want conventional, semi-synthetic, or fully synthetic oil. Conventional oil is fine if you change it every 3000 to 3700 miles. Semi-synthetic: 4000 - 4500.Synthetic: 5000-6000 miles.High mileage oil is another option. If this oil is used, it should be changed every 3000 to 3700 miles.
