I put in 5w30 oil, so what should I change it to now- 10w40 or 20w50? I'm guessing I can keep my new oil filter on there that I changed with the 5w30 oil right? Lastly will it harm the engine to drive it on the 5w30 oil or should I stop driving it until I get the oil changed out again?
I also did put in newish spark plugs- they are semi used that I used to have in my 89 honda accord. They are bosch platinum +2's and side by side of the plugs that were in the car they were a near perfect match by thread length. I hope they are okay to use.
Today I picked up a new cap & rotor, some new spark plug wires are on the way, and lastly I picked up a bottle of chevron/techron fuel system cleaner.
Using the wrong type of oil can be serious. I have the same engine and I run Castrol GTX 20w 50. I get it for $11 for a 5 quart jug at wal-mart. I don't think you need to worry about a little of the 5w 30 be left in the oil filter.
