'94 Saturn SL1 dino oil recommendation

I have this car, I am running Auto-RX in it now in shell rotella oil(200miles in). I'm just wondering what kind of Dino oil I should use when I'm done. Penzoil and Castrol GTX both look good but I can't decide. My dad swears by havoline these days. I'm prety sure I'm gonna stick with a 10w30 unless you think I'd benefit from a different weight. I'm not gonna bother with synthetics anymore, I don't want a repeat of the seal leak that auto-rx seems to have stopped already(or possibly slowed down significantly). --Matt [ November 28, 2002, 12:48 AM: Message edited by: mkosem ]

Either one of those two will serve you just fine, the Pennzoil has a better base oil, but also the GTX has proven itself on here with great oil analysis results. Both oils have a small amount of moly in them too.

hmm, this car hates 5w30. hopefully she'll be happier after the auto-rx. I suppose I'll put drive clean 5w30 in and see how she go's. --Matt

oh, btw, I already have the drive clean laying around and I figured it'd be a good dino oil to stick in after the arx is drained out. --Matt
