Default 2009 pt oil type?

hi, new here, tried a search but couldn't find anything.

Was just wondering what type of oil I'd use for my 2009 Pt cruiser lx? we bought it used and are just trying to get a database of useful information since it did not come with a manual.

Thanks!

Like most cars, 5W30 would cover just about anywhere you live. According to the owners manual, -20 to 100 degrees is covered. Regular dino oil is good unless your running a Turbo, then go for synthetic.

If your asking what brand, there's 100 to choose from.

Mine has a label when you open the hood that says 5w30, then the oil cap says 5w30 on it too.

I used dyno oil for the duration of my bumper to bumper warranty, since oil changes were occurring every 5k miles. Soon as that wore off I move to Mobil 1 synthetic. With a turbo the synth oil is really a preference.

Personally, if I could afford it I'd use nothing but Amsoil in all my vehicles. Just too darned expensive until I get re-employed....
