i don't know. but if your cars got close to, or more than 75,000 miles i wouldn't change the oil until you find maxlife 5w-20. using any other oil will cause your engine to sludge up and crap out on you.

lol. i know oil is oil, ive been using generic dino all this time and could care less, i just want to try something different and its got higher moly count than other oils. plus its synthetic blend. my shop recommended it, they dont have my weight, and if i show up with different oil it might seem like im not listening to his advice. its the only good shop in town.

You can find it, I found some at Wally World a few times. If all else fails, just use the 5w30, and then if I remember right, the LC20 tends to thin oil out a little. Maybe CTX66 can help me if I remember that about the LC20.

Well, according to the site, do make a 5w20. Maybe you can ask wal-Mart manager to order it, or go order it online where.

Just to see, I looked up the cold visocsity (cSt @40C) between 5w20 and 5w30, they are 50.1 and 62.3, so Would try to stick to 5w20 in those cold winters.
