Honestly, all of the Majors (Mobil 1, Pennzoil, Castrol, Valvoline) are very good. I would run any with confidence in your application. Choose what’s on sale, and perhaps consider their high mileage offerings. I would opt for 5W-30 in your application as well.

As said above, I'd use an API recognized synthetic.

I just don't KNOW about going with a non-spec grade (the 5W-30). Ironic because my car specs a 5W-30 or a 10W-30 for heavy / hot applications.
I run Mobil1 0W-40!

"Everyone says" the 0W-20's and 5W-20's are a cheap shot by car makers to get a tiny bit of fuel economy.

Georgia is plenty hot, no?

You can run any major brand that meets the specs with confidence.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Fine choice with Pennzoil, also Quaker State is owned by Pennzoil in case you want to save a few bucks.

Napa Synthetic will be on sale for a week starting tomorrow. 7/1-7/8 it will be $2.99/qt. Napa synthetic is rebranded Synpower smile

If you can get to Napa today 6/30, they have PP for $4.99/qt and there is a $2/qt rebate on top of that. But you must go TODAY. Get off the computer and drive to Napa NOW (unless you already bought some. There is a 10-quart limit on the rebate)

The Napa Platinum filter sale also ends today. $8.99 for a spin-on, $13.99 for most cartridges.

Let the shevles at Walmart guide you to a brand you have heard of and meets the specs in owners manual. Synthetic is better but costs more. Your decision.

Does it have valve train tick?
