  1. Is it right to switch motor oil weights, for example, from a 5W-20 to a 10W-30? Is it real that older and much used cars must only use conventional oil?

    • Haroon –always stick with the manufacturers specification –that is key-of course staying timely with routine service will also save you time and money down the road –call us at the garage for any further help here –thanks for stopping by !
