Keep use the factory 5w-20 in winter time, in summer is it to hot use 5w-30. I have it for experience, use the same oil weight, went u see you car burn a little be of oil thad is went u changed to a next thick weight and like Thad for the live of the engine.

Re: oil

5w30 is fine, its thicker and gives better protection overall, 5w20 was only used for emissions sake.
