I'll be matching this with a Nissan or perhaps a Motorcraft filter.


Since Nissan recommends both 0w20 and 5w30, IMO a 0w30 should be just fine.

+1 Haha, see my sig? I gave some Kendall a try, for two reasons. One, due to it being C-P made, who also makes MC. And two, for the irony (my dad's name is Kendall, lol).
