    okay so i went to the autoparts store today and went for oil and i wanted 10w30 saw the first bottle and was in a rush and grabbed 4more...turns out when im putting it in my car i noticed that two bottles were 10w30 and the rest were 5w30 so now i got two bottles of 10w30 and three of 5w30. Is this a problem?my car started fine and the oil pressure was still in normal..reply fast dont want to drive it tonight if it will mess up something which i dont think it will im just paranoid

    So you end up with 7w30. I think you will be OK. If it were my car, I would run it. Many newer vehicles specify 5w20. Go with the 7w30 this time and dont worry about it.

    A 10w-30 oil is very similar to a 5w-30 oil. At start up the 10w-30 is thicker but eventually thin out to a 5w-30. So your fine.
