My mechanic (I hope he's a good one, he just did my HG!!!) is suggesting a 10W-30 (10W-50?) for my 2.5 L running in the WINTER (in the Northeast).
This runs counter to how I was raised--I thought I should be using a 5W-30 for the winter months up here.
He wants to check my engine and change my oil out at about 1,500 miles after the HG repair (seems sensible), and I was wondering if his viscosity suggestion holds any weight. I've got 10W-xx in there now, from the repair.
