what is the proper oil to use?

use good oil, synthetics are best. when you replace the oil filter make sure the aluminum cover does not hit the alternator positive post. it should have a black cap on it, but they usually fall off.

in my experience the 4.2l motors like the heavier 10W40 brews. synthetics may provide an economical advantage over the long haul - fewer changes.
