What type of oil does a Mitsubishi Lancer use?
See the list of Related Questions below for direct links to model years of Mitsubishi Lancers, where you will be able to find information about the oil type that is recommended for engines used in that year. Oil is measured in viscosity, meaning the thickness of the liquid. Using a viscosity that is not recommended for your engine may cause damage. THE ONLY WAY TO BE 100% CERTAIN YOU ARE USING THE ENGINE OIL RECOMMENDED BY MITSUBISHI IS TO REFER TO YOUR VEHICLE'S OWNER'S MANUAL OR, IF EQUIPPED, THE REFERENCE STICKER ON THE UNDERSIDE OF THE HOOD.

What does 30 means in 5w-30 engine oil?
The 5 and 30 refer to the relative viscosity of the oil when it is cold (5W) and when it is hot (30W). A 5W-30 oil behaves like a 5W thin viscosity oil when the engine is cold, and it behaves like a 30W thicker viscosity oil when the engine is hot. A very thin viscosity is undesirable in a hot engine. In very high temperature situations, an even higher viscosity range, up to 50W, might be called for. Always go by the engine manufacturers recommendations.

Asked in Saturn L-Series
Can you use 10w40 on a Saturn L300?
As the engine wears, the bearing clearances become a little larger, REQUIRING that you use a higher viscosity oil to maintain oil pressure. If using the recommended oil viscosity results in low oil pressure, you should certainly switch to the 10W40. HOWEVER, if the engine can maintain oil pressure using the recommended oil viscosity, you will get better economy and the engine will perform better.

What type of oil is needed for 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan?
According to the manual : ( page 441 ) Engine Oil Viscosity (SAE Grade) - 3.3L & 3.8L Gasoline Engines SAE 5W-20 engine oil is recommended for all operating temperatures. This engine oil improves low temperature starting and vehicle fuel economy. Your engine oil filler cap also shows the recommended engine oil viscosity for your vehicle. For information on engine oil filler cap location, refer to the Engine Compartment illustration in this section. Lubricants which do not have both, the engine oil certification mark and the correct SAE viscosity grade number should not be used. Engine Oil Viscosity (SAE Grade) - 4.0 Liter Engines SAE 10W-30 engine oil is preferred for all operating temperatures. The engine oil filler cap also shows the recommended engine oil viscosity for your vehicle. Lubricants which DO NOT have both, the engine oil certification mark and the correct SAE viscosity grade number should not be used." ( page 444 ) Synthetic Engine Oils You may use synthetic engine oils provided the recommended oil quality requirements are met, and the recommended maintenance intervals for oil and filter changes are followed. Materials Added to Engine Oil The manufacture strongly recommends against the addition of any additives (other than leak detection dyes) to the engine oil. Engine oil is an engineered product and its performance may be impaired by supplemental additives.
