What weight oil do you guys use? I was wondering because I had too much oil in the engine side when I hit SL, and I decided to drain some out...And sure enough, the stupid thing to do. HOT burning oil everywhere. But to finish up the weekend I used 10w30, wondering if it was bad to go from 10w40 to 10w30? thanks

I would recommend changing your oil immediately! You don't want to mix different wieghts of oil together. Not a good idea. If you live in a part of the country where it's cool or going to be cool then I would put a lighter weight ol in such as 10/30. A lighter weight oil will flow better than a heavier weight especially at start up. Here in the desert of AZ in the summer I use 20/50w but in the winter I will change to 10/40w. Just my 02. :D
