My 2001 Dodge Stratus has 181.000 miles on it and I just had a new timing kit installed because of a tensioner problem. The mechanic at Dodge service put 5W20 oil in the car. Mfg calls for 10W30. Isn't this to thin of an oil for high milage tolerences? I do have a slight worn valve guide problem with long idiling. This thin oil makes it even more evident.
