Question Oil Weight for '92 Toyota Corrella

Traded the Mercury for a 1992 Toyotta Corrella from same mechanic. What reason (s) is there for him to use a 10/40 weight oil, when the manual says to use a 5 or 10/30 weight?

Depends on mileage and engine condition. Heavier oil use is generally because it used some oil. Use some 10/30 and see how it goes. As engines age, and start using oil, some go to 10/40.

One of two things:

1) It burns oil and he's using the 40 to mask that ,
2) It's all he has around
3) As Darrell said.

10W30 should be fine in this vehicle, or even 5W30.
