asked by on

I want to use the correct oil in my 2006 Lexus ES 330 now that it has 90,000 miles on it. I live in a cold climate now but will be moving to a warmer area in a few months.

My car has 90000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should be using 5w30 oil all the time no matter the temperature or how old the vehicle gets.
