I called the company department in ~ Nissan to ask them what oil they use 5w30 or 10w30? The company guy told me the they recomend 10w30 due to the fact that it"s thicker and also that"s what they use in all your Nissan vehicles in ~ the dealership. I used 5w30 imperial Purple and also an Amsoil filter on mine 03 3.5 SE before I gained the SE-R and just want to get everyones opinion about the differences betweeen 5w30 and 10w30 and also should I simply stick v 5w30 royal Purple? Is imperial Purple the best artificial out over there or is there a much better brand? This is my very first oil change for mine SE-R through the way at 3750.

I referred to as the service department at Nissan to ask castle what oil they use 5w30 or 10w30? The business guy called me that they recomend 10w30 since it"s thicker and also that"s what they use in all your Nissan vehicles in ~ the dealership. I supplied 5w30 royal Purple and also an Amsoil filter on mine 03 3.5 SE prior to I got the SE-R and just want to obtain everyones opinion about the distinctions betweeen 5w30 and also 10w30 and also should I simply stick with 5w30 royal Purple?

5w30 synthetic is certain fine. 10w30 is ok if girlfriend don"t get extremely low temperatures whereby you live.I"ve supplied Mobil 1 man-made forever. Mainly due to the fact that it goes on sale so often.-Fear
use 5w-30, however if girlfriend want use 10w-30 yet that"s the greatest one girlfriend would want to use. W=winter no weight together most world thinkwhen you execute a cold start up the oil will be in ~ 5 due to the fact that it"s thinner, it"s less complicated on the engine in the cold, and faster lubrication, due to the fact that 80% that engine wear is from lack of oil at cold start, yet as that warms up the unique polymers mix resulting in oil weight to boost to 30 to help the hot temps, and keeping the oil native bubbling and eventually vaporizing bring about your engine to blow
Gotta admit - didn"t understand that, however it looks prefer your right:http://www.lubeus.com/kinematic_viscosity.php
The oil is thicker at cold starts and needs to be warmed up to reduced the viscosity. Ns personally use royal Purple 10W-30 every year round.

EVERYBODY STICK v 5W-30 THAT"S FOR all TEMP"S.................unless u live on the west coast.........
10w30 cell phone 1 for me in summerOne thing not being looked at in this conversation is the reality that when your engine is turned off the thinner oil 5w30 drains off relocating parts quicker earlier down into the oilpan and doesn"t kling to relocating parts as lengthy as the more thick 10w30 , so for coldstarts ns would need to say the 10w30 would be much better especially for our 3.5 timming chains and also sprockets as lengthy as the automobile is permitted to warmup properly before hard driving.
Manual says 5w30. I ran that in mine old 2002 3.5 SE and also it never ever used a fall of oil. I would protect against 10w30. That is created engines that are poorly constructed without chop tollerences that the 3.5 has. I think the main draw back to the 10W30 is poor gas milage.I would certainly stick to what the hand-operated calls for.VG

Hell, even living in Texas, I would certainly stick with 5W-30. Currently on my old 91 Mustang, ns would usage 10W40 in the summer and 10-W30 in the winter together I did because that years in Texas. Currently with brand-new (modern) engines though 5W-30 is the norm. Even brand-new generations Fords speak to for 5w-30.Stay through what the manufacture recommends. My folks have over 100 k on their 2001 Ford utilizing 5W-30 in Texas and their vehicle uses no oil between changes. It may seem favor thin runny oil, however it does what that is supposed to perform in her Altima, be it 10 degrees or 110 degrees. Cheers,VG

So that looks like the consensus is synthetic (Mobil 1 or imperial Purple) 5w-30. Just how long carry out you have to wait ~ above a new car before switching to synthetic? Also, in the northeast it gets yes, really cold, so one winter in PA I offered mobil 1"s 0w-30 on my Jetta. It ran great that winter. Normally I obtain the 5w-30 from mobil 1 but I am willing to obtain Royal violet 5w-30 because that my new SE-R. Just wondering when? 1st recommended oil change? 2nd, 3rd?

first change the 3,750 miles.What most appear to have actually missed in this subject is that every one of the 30 load oils are simply that when they"re warm - 30 weight.They start
5w or 10w cold and warm to 30. Simple.Manufacturers suggest 5 weight as it flows easier cold (does minimize wear) but primarily increases fuel economic situation in a cold engine and allows the engine to warm faster. That"s straight from Nissan engineers.~Eric

5w30 will flow much better in the winter months other than that 5 or 10w30 is OK. Amsoil is very great oil they were the very first to come out with Synthetics. Mobile is additionally a optimal synthetic. I work for BP Oil CO. I address oil everyday.
