    Use the right oil weight

    The 07 is very specific, requiring 5w -??(forgot) oil. Has to do with the aluminum engine according to my dealer.

    07 5.3 flex fuel - engine oil

    Owners Manual states that ONLY 5w-30 weight oil is to be used in this engine. Never seen this limitation before. Guess it has to do with the aluminum engine block or something. Anyone know why?
