Hello , i am asssuming that the engine is a 3.1 litre engine .. The best oil to use is giong to be 10w30.. these engines are notorious for the lower intake manifolds to leak coolant , if it is leaking it needs to be replaced along with the oil change.. If the vehichle has dex cool coolant in it, replace it with the normal green coolant or a universal type coolant ,, dex cool eats up gaskets, and creates many other problems

Had the motor replaced and its fine but now it takes reverse fine but when put in drive it dies. You can drop it in low and it will move but not strong and if you change it manually again it dies. ...
The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.
