You can check for spark yourself with a spare spark plug, pull a wire, attach to spare plug, and angle it so you can see it through the crack between open hood and cowl. Watch through your windscreen, hunched down. If your choke is giving you issue

It will be fine. However it could POSSIBLY cause warranty issues if something happened.

If it's Pennzoil Platinum Pure Plus you have, the 5W-20 is slightly thinner than the 0W-20 according to the datasheet. You or anybody else won't notice the difference.

It's a 20-grade, just use it. Nobody or nothing will know the difference. 5W is perfectly fine for your climate this time of year.

What I find funny about the whole debate is the permeability of tyre is related to the partial pressures of the gasses inside and outside. 30 psi (gauge) tyre, there's about 45 psi inside the tyre, and 15 outside. On air which means that there's (a

Although I believe it is very safe, I also believe that you should stay with the recommended oil for warranty purposes. Maybe use the 5w20 in the warmer months only and stay with the 0w20 for the colder months.
