Hold on, don't add SAE30W if this engine is a Command. If you know it is, or, if not, look on the engine ID tag for a model number to begin with "CV". You need to use SAE10W30 for summer use and SAE5W30 for winter use. If you use 30W, the hydraulic valve lifters will not pump up and you will have no valve clearance.
