    ok, after swapping in my 99 gsr motor into my civic, I drove it for about 1000 miles and then decided to change the oil because the engine had been sitting for some time before i swapped it in.... after another 700miles I just happened to look at the oil change sticker that jiffy lube put on the top of my windshield and it said 5w30!!! i know that normally it should be either 10w30 or 10w40.. is 5w30 ok or do i need to go back to jiffy lube and kick the fucktards asses??
