Originally posted by Pick: Wife just got a new Impala with the 2.2L engine. I have GC and 10W30 Amsoil in stock. 10W30 should not hurt, as we are in Florida, where it is HOT. They specify 5W30 on the filler cap.

I would definitely go with 5w30 in this motor and the semi-related 2.2 Ecotoec in our Cavalier seems to like Havoline dino just fine. How cold is winter in Windsor? I can get away with using dino all year.
