    5w-30 or 10w-30 castrol

    I am wondering if I should put either 5w-30 or 10w-30 Castrol Syntec oil in my '06 wrx. I live in New Hampshire and the weather lately has been 32-45 degrees.

    if i understand it right the number before the w is cold-start viscosity you would be best to refer to the owners manual to make sure your in the temp ranges for your area and type of oil
