10W30 any flavor. keep it changed regularly and you'll be fine.

I run Pennzoil or Quaker State 10W30 year-round at 5K intervals.
Sometimes I'll mix in some 15W40 that i get cheap off promotions.

Get a manual. You'll need it eventually. FSM is far superior to Haynes or chiltons

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

When I do my oil changes, I use 5.5 quarts. I put the 1/2 quart in the filter so that the system is not pumping dry to start with.

I also use Castrol Edge Syntech 10W30. I have had pretty good results with it.

1995 ZJ 5.2L V8 318. 230,000 miles and still rollin.

List of parts not replaced yet:
