Oil types

I have a 97 ranger 2.3 with around 160,000 miles on it. I have several gallon jugs of 10w30 oil in my garage. Is 10w30 okay for the winter cmoing up in northwest indiana? Thanks in advance!

Yeah I would think so, the W in that stands for winter.

It depends on the temperature range your area gets in but 10W30 is fairly decent in just about any engine at any temperature until you get to areas where they've got temperatures consistently held below zero and you're driving in conditions like that for extended periods. The occasional cold snap in Ohio should be fine with 10w30 in the old 2.3. You would definitely not want to use SAE 30 oil (no winter rating), but with 10W, you're fine.
