5W-30 or 0W-20?
I have a 2008 Lexus GS350 that I named Plata with over 150,700 miles. I know Plata takes 5W-30 but the Lexus dealership here on NY is telling me to use 0W-20 because of it's age but I'm wondering because of the whole "oil good for the lifetime transmission" tactics some automakers use on consumers that the same might apply to engine oil and I purchased the 0W-20. Should I let Plata drink OW-20?
Best regards and please stay safe,
Mike and Plata
I would use the old one they're just trying to sell you oil that they have in stock they probably don't stock the old oil anymore stick to the old stuff
Stick to what you have been using and what the manual says to use.
Sometimes the manufacturer will update oil specs. If the manufacturer updated the oil spec to use the new weight, then it should be fine. If not, I’d used the old weight.
