Well after researching this car for about a year I just went out and found an '02 with 26,000 miles on it. I don't have all the paperwork complete on it yet so it is garaged waiting for me to go stand in line at the DMV - but I'm PSYCHED!
I've been searching the forum and trying to figure out what oil to use - seen some interesting answers and am scanning the oil 'bible'. I'm selling a Jeep Grand Cherokee with 82,000 on it - and have been using Amsoil 10W-30 at 7,500-9,000 oil changes. I also use Amsoil in my boat - and am very pleased. Not only do I run it hard but the analysis always comes back with a recommendation to continue using it.
I'd like to stick with the Amsoil but they don't offer a 5W-30 as the manual recommends - rather 0W and 10W. I live in NY so it does get cold in the winter. Up to 30 below where I am.
Which weight would you recommend and why - if not - what type of oil would you recommend? What would be the major difference with going 0W vs. 10W?
