synthetic 5-30 is the best one you could use. for low budget, stick w/ regular 5-30. but cant beat synthetic, its the best so far.

Some really good oils.

Castrol 0W30 Full Synthetic (no other weights are good)
Mobil 1 EP 5W30 or 10W30
Red Line 5W30 or 10W30

An awesome, cheap, non-synthetic. Chevron Supreme.

but if u switch to synthetic get a semi blend first cuz you need to get all the old oil out. put mix in or full synthetic that is a cheap price then drive for 500 miles then drain oil and put fresh full synthetic in

Default RE: oil change

I have a 2004 Endeavor AWD. I just put in Mobil 1 10W-30 extended mileage oil and a Mobil 1 filter, hoping to go with annual oil changes. I've usually gone 6,000 miles between changes. I used Castrol Syntec 5W-50 last oil change, before that was whatever the dealer used (non-synthetic).

I've gone from non-synthetic ("dino") oil to synthetic and back without any flushes on my Chev Lumina APV mini-van and have 172,000 miles in 12 years (currently back to synthetic oil), so an extensive flush is not required (but may be beneficial).

Default RE: oil change

On my (wife's) 2004 Endeavor I've changed the oil filter at six months on my test of Mobil 1 Extended Life oil. The oil seems to be functioning okay and I've seen worse looking oil on a dipstick. But my wife has put on 10K miles already and the oil is recommended for 15K miles, so might be changing the oil in January. Brrrr.
