Mobil 1 5w50 or Castrol Edge 5w50 if you can find locally, if you want to buy online Amsoil has a new 5w50 and Redline does too.

Are you going top load or front load. With front load, you have make sure the washer dries out before closing the door otherwise it gets stinky. If I were to buy a new one today I'd probably look at Electrolux, Samsung, LG for front load or maybe a

If cam wear is an issue, thicker oil may not help. A more robust oil might... Think high mileage or diesel oil... maybe try a 5w20 HM oil... more anti-wear additives (usually...), and often at the thick end of the grade.

Battery could definitely be a problem I'd have it tested/replaced, and shine up those terminals This also being said, its a VAG product, electrical problems aren't to be unexpected.

One is going into a ford and the other is going into a Dodge shop van with a 318 The 318 is very sensitive to oil pressure you can see oil pressure build up on the stock gauge. On the ford its an after market mechanical gauge that is very accurate.
