'02 GC LAREDO OIL ISSUE HELP!

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 144,214 miles

I recently moved to upstate NY from FlawDUH where I purchased this car & as soon as I got here I bought Mobil 1 oil & had the mechanic change the oil, etc. In the last month everytime I drive the oil gauge registers only at 80, the far end of the gauge and never sits in the middle where it sat when I was in FLA. Do you think this is from cooler weather and the oil being thick? I just want to be sure nothing serious as winter is fast approaching. Thanks so much. JOY

Yes cooler temps will cause oil viscosity to increase. Was Mobil1 oil what was used in FL? What weight are you using 5W20 ect
