I've recently finished a big project restoring my first car, a 1991 Eagle Talon TSi. Sadly its not the AWD w/ stick combo, has to make due with the automatic, but it turned out great. Its got 122K on it, consumes under a quart every 1000 miles. I've always run 10w30 in this car before. Noticed the other day on the sun visor it recommends 10w30, 20w20 or 10w40. I only drive it un the summers, really doesn't leak much to speak of, maybe a drop here and there but no big deal. I've never heard of 20w20, should I stick with 10w30 or would there be any benefit to 10w40?

Personally, I’d try a HM oil. You could experiment with 10W30 vs 10W40 to see which one the engine likes better.

I’d run a good moly rich 10W30 synthetic like QSUD.

Isn't 20w20 essentially 20wt?

I’d might stick with the 10w30 for now but go with a HM oil and see how that works. It might take time to notice any difference.

Those were dandy little motors in those Talons.

No, 20w20 performs as a 20 grade when it's cold, but also when it's hot. Straight 20 grade performs as a 20 grade all the time.

I'd rock a 10w-40.
Maxlife has a good A3 oil. Used it in our Audi during the summer's.
Great price too.

Thanks! I’ll try a 10w40 next oil change and see how it does!

Just in this for discussion...but back then i dont think there was 5w40... so 10w30 or 10w40 were the 'norm'.

How about a dual rated 5w40? Like Mobil TDT 5w40 or Chevron Delo XSP 5w40?

My 300ZX had the 10W30-10W40 sticker under the hood. It said “Below 60F 10W30. Above 60F 10W40.

The only W50 I would use in a 4cyl would be a synthetic 5W50 or 15W50. Maybe M1 15W50.
