Car mileage 180,000 km and piston rings were changed, head gasket and valve seals replaced, engine oil chamber opened and then siliconed. Then I put 20W-50 engine oil and engine ran a little hard when starting, but is ok once started. Now I changed the engine oil after 3000 Km, and my mechanic told me to put a thinner oil, 10W-40. Is thinner oil will be better? Or should I use the same thick engine oil of 20W-50? Please comment.

I like 20-50 on older vehicles. But I by whats on sale so I get 10-30 and 10-40 also. I also use LUCAS oil stabilizer to keep more oil in the bearings when not running. Increases viscosity to.
