What is ppl's preferences on Engine oil....
I use valvoline full synthetic but is there other good oil? How's the redline engine oil?
Oh and being in SLC, UT, is 10-w30 ok or should I go a bit thicker to 10-w40? It gets cold here, but no so cold it'll freeze all hell over or something


And the oil filter...what is good...I sure all of them are decent, but ...Fram is good, what else is good?

After learning how to change oil, I feel ridiculous paying 19-25$ to change oil.

Fram is crap, apparantly. Stick with the Mazda OEM filter AND replace the OEM aluminum washer on the drain plug at each change. Mobil 1 is god stuff, but I'd go for a thinner one. 0-w15 or something.
