I need to change my oil and I am wondering what oil y'all would recommend, I have topping off with Pennzoil, also should I stick with the standard weight oil? Thanks!

Motor oil thins as it heats and thickens as it cools. For my car it calls for 10w 30 i think in the winter you could use 5w 30 because it would be thinner when cold. thicker oil seals better when hot. if the oil is to thick it uses more energy to turn the crankshaft.

I second Castrol Edge. Great oil. 5w20 here, but whatever owners manual recommends is best. The engineers designed the engine to run with the specified oil.
