I just picked up a '98 Cavalier, and I wondered what the 2.2 engines preferred. It currently sounds decent, hot or cold. I notice that some oils at or near factory spec are characterized here as thicker or thinner. I wondered what 2.2 owners may have noticed their engines like best. A high school/college age girl owned this car, but her Dad advised her on car stuff. So, its my assumption that the oil got changed OK, but with average dino factory-weight oils. I don't plan any big changes in type type or weight, but I plan a few short changes to help clean things out. With winter coming, I'd hoped to get a feel for what these engines might like best.
